BEST Party Model: Shaping Party Environments to Prevent Sexual Violence @ Webinar
Mar 12 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

To register: http://conferences.bwjp.org/webconferencedetail.aspx?confid=367

Presenter: Ed Heisler, Executive Director, Men As Peacemakers; Co-Coordinator, Minnesota Men’s Action Network (MN-MAN): Alliance to Prevent Sexual and Domestic Violence
Description: For many college students, parties and college are like books and classes. They just go together. Students come to college to earn a degree, but college parties are an integral part of the recreational and social experience. Unfortunately, though, parties frequently include domination, disrespect, or use of sexual or physical violence against women. This can devastate individuals and negatively impact the entire campus community. The reality is that men are responsible for most of these damaging behaviors, and women are left to deal with party environments that become uncomfortable and dangerous. The party scene, however, does not have to be overshadowed by discomfort, fear, and violence against women. Men As Peacemakers, through its MN-MAN programming, has worked with students to create the BEST Party Model—an innovative approach to sexual assault prevention on college campuses.  BEST involves college men and women in shaping safe, respectful, and fun party environments that will help prevent sexual violence.  This webinar will provide an introduction to the BEST Party Model, and explain what students are doing to create Party Revolution to prevent sexual violence.
Learning Objectives:

  • Understand factors that contribute to a campus environments across the country where an average of 1 in 5 women experience an attempted or completed rape.
  • Describe the importance of college party environments as a platform for the primary prevention of sexual and domestic violence.
  • Define a primary prevention strategy allowing individuals to shape social environments, including parties, to prevent sexual and domestic violence.
  • Define how the BEST Party Model anchors an innovative, campus-wide strategy, to promote gender equity and prevent sexual and domestic violence.
