CAWS Conference Discusses Ways to End Sexual and Domestic Violence

Posted:

The Council on Abused Women's Services work to end sexual and domestic violence.

Advocates, service providers, and prevention specialists gather for the seventh CAWS Conference.

The three day conference discusses transforming domestic violence programs to include LGBTQ survivors, multiple forms of harm such as drugs and alcohol, and bystander intervention training.

Today's topic focuses on men's roles as active bystanders in sexual violence prevention.

Educators look at ways to engage men and boys in ending sexual and domestic violence.

"That's why we have Men Can Stop Rape here to help us with conducting bystander intervention and training and giving men and boys more options to help each other learn what healthy masculinity is and how to provide positive and effective bystander intervention strategies in their own lives," says Stephanie Gerhardt, CAWS Training Coordinator.
