VIOLENCE PREVENTION
EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

Ozark Rape Crisis Center believes it is critical to provide effective sexual violence prevention education and information to the community and offers the following violence prevention educational programs to schools, churches, employers, professional organizations, civic clubs and other organizations at no cost.

Safe Dates – is a research based program with strong, long-term outcomes. Safe Dates has been identified as a model program in the National Registry of Effective Programs. It can be presented in four, six, or nine sessions and is designed to prevent the initiation of psychological, physical, and sexual abuse between individuals in dating relationships by using interactive group discussion. A play and a poster contest are optional activities.

Give Respect, Get Respect –The four-session program was modeled after other evidence based curricula including:  Expect Respect, Safe Dates, Effective Strategy Based Curriculum for Abuse and Empowerment (ESCAPE) and Safety Planning, Awareness, Choice, and Empowerment (SPACE), but was adapted for people with disabilities and teaches the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships.

Media Literacy – developed by the Media Literacy Project of New Mexico, this curriculum is a three to five session program that teaches participants the process of accessing, analyzing, evaluating, and creating media, and will increase recognition of the negative effects of sexual objectification/exploitation of women in the media.

Tough Guise - developed by Jackson Katz and is an exciting new media literacy tool utilizing racially diverse subject matter and examples that will enlighten and provoke students (both males and females) to evaluate their own participation in the culture of contemporary masculinity. The target outcome is to empower young men and women to challenge the myth that being a real man means putting up a false front and engaging in violent and self-destructive behavior.

Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention – This is a single session program that discusses sexual assault statutes, myths about rape, the effects of sexual violence on a victim, what to do if someone has been sexually assaulted, and red flags of dangerous relationships. Safety tips and resource information are offered throughout program.
