Gender-based violence on college and university campuses is preventable. By engaging male faculty and students in the discussion of what healthy and respectful manhood looks like, we can raise their awareness of how collective socialization has shaped their thoughts about manhood, women, and marginalized groups. AVDA Prevention and Education Manager John Reyes will share with the audience how to help our male college students think critically about how they may be passing harmful beliefs to others and how they can open their eyes to and practice healthy, respectful manhood. Based on the national Live Respect curriculum, John will cover such topics as the “Man Box”; society’s gender roles, stereotypes and man teachings; the media connection and objectification; understanding sexual harassment and sexual assault; and healthy manhood and relationships. Dating abuse intervention skills will also be discussed, especially recognizing the signs of abuse and how to talk to a friend who is experiencing dating violence and provide resources. John will explain how protective orders and safety planning can help protect a friend who is experiencing abuse.
