Situational prevention is a largely unaddressed level of prevention intervention. Situational prevention, which emphasizes reducing the environmental opportunities for violence to take place, has a critical importance within a comprehensive sexual violence prevention approach.
In January 2020, a report, Enhancing Campus Sexual Assault Prevention Efforts through Situational Intervention, will be released. In this web conference, the report’s authors will share the methodology developed that can be used across a range of college and university settings to: identify specific campus spaces perceived to be unsafe; identify multiple dimensions within those spaces that contribute to safety concerns and create perpetration opportunities; and generate place-based strategies that can address those environmental conditions.
In March 2020, PreventConnect will hold Part 2 web conference that will highlight college campus applications of this methodology.
