If there ever was a silver bullet… it might look like this

By Kristy Trautmann I was working at a rape crisis center in the early 2000s when the field of prevention was in its infancy. I knew in my bones that the risk reduction strategies being sold to women (go out in groups, carry your keys, look in the backseat before you get into a car) had almost no chance of preventing someone from being raped. Most assaults take place at home, and most perpetrators are known (acquaintances, friends, or partners) not strangers. It was a new concept then to enlist men as allies in preventing violence against women. And, frankly, I thought it was a …

What works in Preventing Gender Violence? Researchers and Practitioners Dialogue held Nov. 7

The field of prevention is continuing to evolve. Practitioners, educators, and advocates are in the community every day, working to prevent sexual harassment, abuse, and relationship violence before it happens and to reach the most vulnerable victims who are least likely to get help. On Nov. 7, 2019, researchers from the division of Adolescent Medicine at Children’s Hospital of UPMC, University of Pittsburgh, and Seton Hill University presented on emerging research findings. They invited a dialogue about the meaning of the data and its implications for shaping ongoing prevention efforts. More than 100 professionals engaged in efforts to break the cycle of violence and prevent …
