Curricula & Strategies
Addressing and preventing sexual violence in all its forms requires thoughtful strategies and intentional implementation. NJCASA has a number of initiatives focused on building meaningful collaboration.
GENDER AND VIOLENCE: How Media Shape Our Culture
Media Literacy is the ability to think critically about what we see every day and create alternatives to mass media. Media literacy skills teach people to identify and comment on negative sexualized mass media and understand the impact of such damaging messages. These materials and strategy are intended for use with young adults (typically 8th or 9th grade) to college-aged adults.
To request training in your community, contact a trained and passionate preventionist at a New Jersey Sexual Violence Program.
