Engaging Bystanders in Sexual Violence Prevention is a resource from the NSVRC. This resource is also available in Spanish.
On the resource:
“This book presents a compelling orientation to the importance of engaging bystanders in sexual violence prevention. The narrative provides background on the development of an approach that empowers each of us to be involved in prevention. It discusses various reasons why individuals who witness a range of inappropriate behaviors may or may not take action, and presents ways to encourage and develop greater bystander involvement. Finally, this book serves as an excellent training resource; it provides activities and trainer instructions throughout that make it a useful educational guide on bystander engagement in sexual violence prevention.”
In continuation with the National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) ‘s fact sheet on community assessment, this document summarizes key measurement tools that can be used in assessment work. In the similar vein of thought, “it is important determining which type of measure you use that will give you the riches information for the questions you are asking.”
