The Realities of Date Rape.
Presley, Cara; Watson, Jennifer; Williams, Audrey R.
This poster presentation addresses the issue of date rape, specifically in the college environment. Highlighted are date rape statistics, demographics, and date rape drugs. Also discussed are date rape warnings and prevention strategies. It is concluded that college and university administrators must place the issue of date rape and acquaintance rape as a priority on their campus and follow through with funding and university support and commitment to make any difference in helping preventing it. Specifically, educational programming should include three components: rape risk reduction, awareness of the impact of rape, and victim assistance. (Contains 19 references.) (GCP)
