The Men's and Women's Programs: Ending Rape through Peer Education is a guide for college administrators and faculty members looking to create a sexual assault prevention and education program to provide men and women with the knowledge, skills, and support systems needed to become active participants in the prevention of rape. It contains detailed scripts which outline how to set up and implement a program and provides instructions on running a training course and recruiting peer educators. Handouts and worksheets are included to assist in the training process, as well as for peer educators to use when working with participants. This revised version of the program features the inclusion of a program targeted at female participants, as well as completely updated scripts, handouts, and resources. Accompanying the text are two guides (sold separately) for peer educators to use when working with program participants: The Men's Program and The Women's Program.
"No other publications provide the explicit language to enable youth to work toward ending sexual violence and be assured that their interventions among their peers are meaningful, research-based, and lasting. A charged, emotional topic is voiced in a way that engages both those who offer and those who experience these sexual assault survivor programs." - Charles G. Eberly, PhD, Professor of Counseling and Student Development, Eastern Illinois University and Past President, Center for the Study of the College Fraternity
"As a speaker on sexual assault, depression, and suicide, I have long been an admirer of John Foubert. This book is a must for anyone that works in the sexual assault field and is interested in using a unique, successful, research based program for men and women. I am particularly impressed with The Women's Program. I have seen nothing like this available." - Andrea Fuller Cooper, Kristin's Story, LLC
"Dr. Foubert has outdone himself. This book is a must-have for peer educators, student service personnel, and any professional committed to preventing or addressing sexual violence. The level of detail and clarity is unparalleled, while the inclusion of specific scripts for conducting both men's and women's programming ensures positive outcomes. This book demonstrates why Dr. Foubert is considered a leader in this field." - Keith L. Kaufman, Professor of Psychology, Portland State University
"...a user-friendly, "how-to" text that focuses on the use of peer educators to address the complex and sensitive issues of rape prevention. It is the kind of book that should be in every Student Affairs and Resident Assistant's office and bookshelf...Although discussion focusing on rape frequenly leave audiences uncomfortable, frightened, defensive, and/or silent, the creative ideas used in this program enable the peer educators to establish rapport with participants by creating victim empathy within a context of how to help a sexual assault survivor...If you are working with young men and women and want to or are mandated to develop a prevention program, The Men's and Women's Program is a book that is highly recommmended to help you begin." - Lois A. Carey, Social Work with Groups
