Sexual dating violence

22 Jan

SUNY students and employees have the right to make a report to University Police/Campus Security, local law enforcement, and/or the State Police or choose not to report; to report the incident to your college; to be protected by the college from retaliation for reporting an incident; and to receive assistance and resources from your college.

SUNY's policy is that response to sexual violence and related crimes is driven by the reporting victim/survivor.

Second, community-based interventions to form gender equitable attitudes among boys and girls have successfully prevented IPV or SV.

Third, evidence suggests that parenting interventions and interventions with children and adolescents subjected to maltreatment hold promise in preventing IPV or SV by addressing child maltreatment, which is a risk factor for later perpetration or experience of IPV or SV.

Interventions for girls and boys (10–19 years) were identified through electronic searches for peer-reviewed and gray literature such as reports and research briefs.

Studies were excluded if they were published before 1990 or did not disaggregate participants and results by age.

These were categorized as “parenting” (n = 8), “targeted interventions for children and adolescents subjected to maltreatment” (n = 3), “school based” (n = 31; including 10 interventions to prevent sexual assault among university students), “community based” (n = 16), and “economic empowerment” (n = 2). A good number have relatively weak research designs, short follow-up periods, and low or unreported retention rates.

Having a clear definition of the issue is the first step towards its elimination.

Sexual violence, as defined by the United Nations is “[a]ny violence, physical or psychological, carried out through sexual means or by targeting sexuality” .

It is understood that each woman defines sexual violence differently based on her own personal and unique experience.

It is also understood that any definition must acknowledge that while the majority of sexual violence is committed by men against women and children, it is also experienced by people in same sex relationship, by Trans people and by some men.
