27 November, 9:30am – 1100am
Function Room (730-220), School of Population Health, Tamaki Innovation Campus, University of Auckland, Gate 1, 261 Morrin Rd, Glen Innes, Auckland
This presentation is about how we can involve men in preventing domestic and sexual violence. This involves making a welcoming approach to men, harnessing their motivation and providing them with real opportunities to make a difference.
Involving men is an international development in violence prevention that can make a real difference in New Zealand. Men can provide the positive influence other men need. By concentrating on men’s social norms there is a real opportunity to undermine the social environment that supports violence. And by transforming the links between masculinity and violence there can be real pressure to stop violence.
This presentation will give you an understanding of the benefits of involving men, the theoretical basis of this work, motivation that can be used, what engages men, the challenges to be managed and future developments you could use effectively.
This presentation is based on research for a New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse issues paper being released on White Ribbon Day (25th November 2013). This paper is written by Garth Baker who will make this presentation.
Presenter – Garth Baker
Garth is a violence prevention researcher and programme designer. He established RAP, the youth violence prevention project, and has been involved in numerous violence prevention research projects. He’s designed several new programmes for men to learn how to live without violence, including a programme for Tongan men. He has advised on gender education resources for young men, trained men in Papua New Guinea and is currently designing an approach to address restrictive gender attitudes.
This is a free 90 minute seminar. Please RSVP to Nicola Paton – email: n.paton@auckland.ac.nz or ph: (09)923 5873 by 2 December 2013
