A Study of a University-Based Men-Only Prevention Program (Men Care): Effect on Attitudes and Behaviors Related to Sexual Violence
Liu, En-Hsien
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Southern California
This study assesses the correlations of participation in a prevention program, Men Creating Attitudes for Rape-free Environments (Men CARE), and participants' attitudes and behavior toward sexual violence. The t-tests were used to determine the association, either by the intervention or the cohort, on attitudes and behaviors between the groups, across student affiliation and ethnicity. After the primary statistical analysis, it appeared that the workshop was having an influence on participants' attitudes about and behavior toward rape. The result demonstrates that the workshop is helpful in decreasing rape myth acceptance, increasing knowledge of sexual violence, increasing pro-social bystander attitudes, and increasing bystander efficacy.
