Mobilizing Men to Prevent Violence Against Women: A Comprensive and Community Centered Approach
Men Stopping Violence has engaged thousands of men as allies in preventing violence against women. Drawing from this experience, this innovative training will explore the reasons why engaging men is essential to the prevention of male violence, improve participants’ practices of engaging men by providing them with the requisite tools and understanding of foundational concepts such as sustainability, intersectionality, and community accountability. Focusing on both theory and practice, participants are invited into critical self-reflection and action planning using various modalities including small and large group discussions. The goal of this training is to strengthen participants’ capacity to organize men in their communities to prevent male violence against women.
June 20 & 21
Men at Work: Intervening with Men
Men Stopping Violence (MSV) has been intervening with men who use abusive and controlling behaviors for over thirty-five years. Over this time, MSV developed nationally recognized practices that hold men accountable and create safer communities for women and girls. In this training, Men Stopping Violence will introduce facilitation and group management skills proven to address facilitation challenges, develop a productive class culture, and model conflict resolution skills to class participants. We will examine strategies to balance supporting men in difficult situations and the necessity of maintaining intervention program expectations for these men.
