This comprehensive volume brings together the expertise of leading practitioners, researchers, and policy makers to prevent sexual violence. Through a progression of 30 chapters, the Sourcebook provides practical approaches to prevention and describes the underlying frameworks that support each approach.

The Sourcebook begins by introducing cutting edge prevention approaches along with a broad sampling of nationally recognized programs to illustrate the power of well designed prevention efforts. To foster the development of innovative new prevention programs, a section of the Sourcebook is dedicated to “how to” oriented approaches. The Sourcebook concludes with an examination of the role of cultural issues in the prevention of sexual violence and offers insights for influencing local and national policy change.

Chapters cover the spectrum of topics from internet safety, influencing public policy, and addressing sex offender notification practices, to creating effective prevention programming for children and teens, organizations, adults in the community, and young adults on college campuses. This Sourcebook is an essential tool for any professional who wants to incorporate the prevention of sexual violence into their practice or enhance the quality of existing services.
