This course will support and motivate you as you apply community mobilization theory and techniques in your sexual assault and domestic violence prevention work. We assume that you are familiar with the basic theory and practice of community mobilization, along with general concepts of primary prevention. New learners should complete the Building Blocks of Prevention course before proceeding.
As prevention practitioners, we know that we cannot prevent sexual and domestic violence on our own. Our efforts must be informed, developed, and implemented by the communities in which we work to promote healthy, positive standards for behavior (norms). How do we engage community members in prevention efforts? Advance through this lesson to learn how.
The goal of this course is to support you as you incorporate community mobilization into your prevention practice, through these educational and skill objectives.
- Understand community mobilization as it relates to the primary prevention of sexual assault and domestic violence.
- Learn about examples of successful sexual assault and domestic violence community mobilization initiatives.
- Be able to incorporate community mobilization principles into general social ecological theory.
