Grade Lvl: S Author:
Length: 28 Copyright: 2008
To the average student, the definition of date rape and sexual assault are notoriously unclear. This program eliminates the confusion so young adults understand exactly what these things are--and the attitudes and biases that typically accompany them--before anyone gets hurt. Underscores the rules of the dating game; a date is not an invitation for sex; No means No; and the inability to give consent doesn't mean Yes. Interviews with rape survivors and mental health professionals shed additional light on the trauma caused by rape, the process of post-rape emotional recovery, and the importance of post-rape support by family and friends. Date rape drugs are given special attention, and tips on safer dating are provided.
