The Men's Program
Peer Educator's Manual
Routledge – 2011 – 102 pages
This guide contains the training materials necessary for the student/peer educator who will be facilitating the men's program. 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 be taught about rape via in-depth discussions and videos that will put them in the shoes of the victim, helping them to understand what it might feel like for both a woman and a man to experience rape. Methods for helping survivors and ways to prevent rape are then covered, including bystander interventions.
This package includes ten copies of The Men'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
