"Framing Sexual Assault: The Public Health Model and Sexual Violence Prevention"
Friday, April 8, 1-2 p.m.
Urban Center -Parsons Gallery, Room 212>
A facilitated discussion by Sandra Clark, M.P.H. and Torrie Bordokoff, M.P.H. Candidate
This is a discussion-based hour in which we'll analyze how media framing of sexual violence influences our solutions and our ideas about prevention as social change activists, public health workers, and community members. We're going to discuss the public health model not only as an approach to sexual violence prevention, but as a specific framing device for how we discuss, think about, and respond to sexual violence portrayals in the media. Participants will be given tools to do media framing analysis that will enhance our ability to mobilize communities and advance the discussion about sexual violence prevention.
