    3. 3.  Peers Advocating Anti-Violence Education Formerly known as SAFE Team Educators completed 18 hour training on domestic violence and sexual assault Provides UNLV campus with presentations on specific topics in domestic violence and sexual assault Currently going through Spring 2010 training. Check us out on Facebook: UNLV PAAVE or Gmail: unlv.paave@gmail.com
    4. 4. The goal of this discussion is to “shift the focus” of dominant conceptualizations of violence that maintain an idea of victims/survivors as typically white, heterosexual women. In addition, we aim to provide students with knowledge of campus and community initiatives for victims of violence. Ultimately, we aim to broaden the discussion of violence in different communities to effectively address violence as a social epidemic.
    5. 5.  25% of women and 7% of men will be victims of domestic violence or partner rape. Yearly, 3.3 million children are exposed to interfamily violence against their mothers or female caretakers
    6. 6.  Only about 42% of rapes/sexual assaults were reported to law enforcement in 2007 1 out of 6 Americans have been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime About 3% of men (2.78 million) have experienced an attempted or completed rape against them
    7. 7. U.S. Justice Department: Assault ◦ “Physical assault is a behavior that threatens, attempts, or actually inflicts physical harm, ranging from slapping and hitting to using a gun”Nevada Revised Statutes: Sexual Assault ◦ “A person who subject another person to sexual penetration, or who forces another person to make a sexual penetration on himself or another, against the victim’s will or under conditions in which the perpetrator knows or should know that the victim is mentally or physically incapable of resisting or understanding the nature of his conduct, is guilty of sexual assault”
    8. 8.  Many different forms of abuse: ◦ Physical battering – can range from pushing or bruising to murder. Escalates in level of abuse ◦ Sexual abuse – Physical attack that is coupled with forced/unwanted sexual activity ◦ Psychological battering – verbal abuse, harassment, excessive possessiveness, economic resource limiting and destruction of personal property
    9. 9.  Stereotypical Box Exercise ◦ Womyn ◦ Men Jackson Katz, Clip ◦ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3exzMPT4nGI The role of: ◦ Patriarchy ◦ Sexism ◦ Ism’s
    10. 10.  The experience of violence carries much stigma in our society but there are other barriers that contribute to the lack of reporting: ◦ Lack of adequate services available ◦ Services that lack necessary tools to properly assess violence in marginalized communities
    11. 11.  Can be short or long term ◦ Cutting/ self-mutilation ◦ Eating disorders ◦ Depression ◦ Alcohol and substance abuse ◦ Re-entrance into a violent relationship ◦ Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)*  More information on PTSD and violence is available upon request
    12. 12.  A member of the agent social group who takes a stand against social injustice directed at target groups. An ally works to be an agent of social change rather than an agent of oppression. Four basic levels of becoming an ally ◦ Awareness ◦ Knowledge/Education ◦ Skills ◦ Action
