 Topic: Summary of Dating Violence Survey
Thursday, May 11th at

11 am PT / noon MT / 1 pm CT / 2pm ET

Intimate partner violence is a major health concern. The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey conducted in 2010 found that more than 1 in 3 women (36%) and more than 1 in 4 men (29%) in the United States have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetimes.1 The 2015 Youth Risk Behavior Survey reported that 10% of high school students (12% of females, 7% of males) experienced physical dating violence in the past 12 months, and 16% of females and 5% of males experienced sexual dating violence.

The Center for Health and Safety Culture conducted an internet-based survey of high school students aged 18 to 20 from across the country. We asked about their experiences with harassing behaviors (e.g., having someone repeatedly contact them to see where they were or who they were with, making mean or hurtful comments to them, spreading rumors about them), aggressive behaviors (e.g., making threatening or aggressive comments, trying to get them to talk about sex when they did not want to, and asking them to do something sexual that they did not want to do), and violent behaviors (e.g., physically hurting them or forcing them to do sexual things that they did not want to do). We asked about their perception of harm, sense of disapproval, and sense of acceptance for these behaviors. We also asked about how they perceived others (e.g., most boys and most girls in their school) felt about these behaviors. Finally, we asked about their willingness to intervene with a friend who was experiencing these behaviors.

Topic: What is the Positive Culture Framework?
Wednesday, June 14th at

11 am PT / noon MT / 1 pm CT / 2pm ET

The Positive Culture Framework (PCF) is an approach based on our latest research about improving health and safety in our communities and organizations. PCF seeks to cultivate health and safe environments. This framework builds on the shared values, beliefs and attitudes that already exist in a culture to promote health and safety. This is a natural next step from “Positive Community Norms” and builds on the recognition that the solutions exist in the community. The Positive Culture Framework is a generalized process that can be used to address any public health or safety issue. Examples may be shared from the areas of traffic safety, substance abuse, and violence prevention.
