Much of the research on violence prevention to date has focused on risk factors such as poverty or prior exposure to violence.
The Promise Program is taking a different approach: studying whether strengthening protective factors, such as community ties and sense of purpose, can prevent violence in African American young men.
As a single dose program, it may allow participants to learn language vital to understanding the topic and campus- specific language.
This base of knowledge can allow further trainings to be more efficient. The effects of journaling on the perception of the overall course experience of community college nursing students.
-Identifies and defines of physical, sexual and emotional abuse of children; -Provides stories of adult survivors; -Educates clergy and lay leaders on how to respond to child abuse; -Discusses theological issues (forgiveness, confidentiality); -Offers effective child abuse prevention strategies from a faith perspective; -Models how to respond to a victim's disclosure of abuse.“Violence is not only impractical, but immoral,” says another, quoting Dr. The young men are from the pilot class of the Promise Program, an NIMHD-funded project aimed at reducing violence in the African American community.They speak in a video they produced at the end of the 9-month program.The mission of Get Inclusive is to “create more inclusive communities” through online trainings designed to raise awareness and instill participants with skills to identify and intervene in risky or potentially dangerous situations.Online trainings for faculty, staff, and students fulfill federally mandated education in accordance with the Campus Sa VE Act.Self reflection activities throughout the training provide optional journaling boxes with questions to consider.Participants are asked to reflect on their options and reactions when witnessing sexual or relationship violence between strangers and acquaintances, as well as on their own life experiences.Leonard Upson, program coordinator at Howard University, explains, “If the young men are grounded in these protective factors, it will help reduce their inclinations to being violent or acting out. These aren’t students at risk, they’re students at promise.” The program, now in its second year, is part of the Minority Men’s Health Initiative (MMHI).The MMHI is studying health problems that disproportionately affect minority men, including diseases such as diabetes and cancer—and violence, which has only recently been recognized as a health disparity comparable to diabetes. Offending rates for murder are also higher for African Americans, as homicide victims are more likely to be killed by someone of their own race or ethnicity.Topics covered in the Campus Sa VE training include: definitions, College/University’s Statement, primary prevention, bystander intervention, behaviors and norms, empathy building, and strategies for risk reduction.Sections can be fully customized in terms of content to ensure all students and staff are provided with a common campus specific language for the topic and understanding of school policies.Both of these approaches to violence prevention are supported by ample research in the field.Self-reflection exercises are included throughout the training to encourage participants to reflect on the material covered and apply it to scenarios in which they are bystanders to dangerous or potentially risky situations.There is no minimum or maximum number required allowing the program to be used on any size campus.
