Rape Prevention Program Evaluation
Seven months after seeing The Men’s Program, a commonly used rape prevention program, 248 first-year college men responded to four open-ended questions concerning whether or not the program impacted their attitudes or behavior, particularly regarding alcohol related sexual assault. Two thirds of participants reported either attitude or behavior change during the preceding academic year due to the program’s effects or that the program reinforced their current beliefs. Many participants described specific incidents where they intervened to prevent a rape or stopped themselves from engaging in risky behavior.
An experimental study evaluated the efficacy of a sexual assault risk-reduction program on 279 college women that focused on learning characteristics of male perpetrators and teaching bystander intervention techniques. After seeing The Women's Program, participants reported significantly greater bystander efficacy and significantly greater willingness to help than before seeing the program. Participants outperformed a control group. Rape myth acceptance also declined among program participants. Implications for rape awareness programming are discussed. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

While it does complement the guide for administrators, it is designed to be a self-contained manual. It includes all of the program scripts and handouts, as well as advice for running the program. The program scripts lay out each session in detail for the leader. Participants will learn how to recognize and identify dangerous men, how to help a friend who is a survivor of rape, and about ways to be an active bystander. The program scripts lay out each session in detail for the leader. Videos will be used to reinforce the material. This package contains ten copies of The Women's Program.

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.
