Sexual violence accompanies physical and psychological violence as tactics used by men referred to Family Violence Intervention Programs, but is often de-emphasized in comparison.

A de-emphasis on sexual violence may be a result of facilitator discomfort discussing the issue or a lack of understanding about how sexual violence relates to other abusive tactics. In this day long workshop, Men Stopping Violence will share its definition of male sexual violence, explore tactics on the spectrum of sexual violence, and provide tools to teach sexual respect in Family Violence Intervention Programs.

Proposed location: Georgia Public Safety Training Center – 108 Sunshine Avenue, Savannah, Georgia 31405
