Healthy dating: A mixed-gender date rape workshop

Describes a mixed-gender workshop on date rape prevention given to more than 1,400 undergraduate students in more than 80 presentations. To guide modifications of the workshop, formative evaluation data were collected from 330 male and 314 female university students. Results were largely positive. Despite the sensitive nature of the topic, only 10.2% of the men and 8.2% of the women reported being uncomfortable discussing date rape in mixed-gender groups. Furthermore, students were virtually unanimous in their agreement that date rape is a topic worthy of a workshop. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2002 APA, all rights reserved)
