This book explores positive criminology as a mechanism to reduce the risk of recidivism, eradicate harm, prevent reoffending as well as to help reintegrate those with histories of sexual abuse back into the community.
Author: Stephanie Kewley
Preventing Sexual Harm provides an overview of current criminal justice strategies to tackling sexual violence, and highlights existing positive criminological approaches that could help prevent sexual abuse and harm. Sexual violence is a complex, multi-faceted crime. Its causes and consequences are both multiple and enduring and our understanding of sexual violence is embedded within our social, cultural and political constructs. As such, a response to sexual violence ought to be equally as complex and multi-faceted. Alternative approaches might therefore be needed, such as Positive Criminology. In response, this book explores Positive Criminology as a mechanism to reduce the risk of recidivism, eradicate harm, prevent re-offending as well as helping to reintegrate those with histories of sexual abuse back into the community. In light of recent historical cases of sexual abuse and poor institutional response to these allegations, it opens with an overview of the current landscape of sexual offending. The book then reviews the current positive criminological approaches already in existence in the effort to prevent sexual abuse, outlining the approach of Positive Criminology and demonstrating the many gaps in practice that might benefit from this new way of working to prevent sexual abuse. Highlighting that an alternative response to sexual violence is needed, and presenting the idea that a positive criminological paradigm is worthy of further examination, this book will be of great interest to scholars of criminology, criminal justice and forensic psychology.

Protecting children from sexual violence - A comprehensive approach is a collection of highly readable expert papers for both child professionals And The general public. it is divided into five parts, presenting a European overview and covering the existing legal frameworks; abuse prevention and reporting; rehabilitation and social reintegration of victims; sexual violence on the Internet; and public and private partnerships against abuse. it also sheds light on the little-known problem of children who are sexually abusing other children. In addition to providing thorough information on the many facets of this complex subject, this publication also highlights new concepts, facts and recommendations. Foremost is the significant lack of data on the prevalence and nature of sexual violence in Europe, underscoring the need for co-ordinated pan-European research and information gathering, which are vital to effective policy making and programme design. it also sounds the alarm for urgent co-ordinated action in various fields to drastically improve child protection through awareness raising; targeted and specialised training, intervention and therapy programmes; sex education in schools; responsible family attitudes; and justice systems with tighter abuse laws and which take account of children's special needs as reliable witnesses. Protecting children from sexual violence is published as part of the Council of Europe campaign to stop sexual violence against children. The hope is that this publication will inspire judges, The police, educators, governments, The media and legislatures to join the campaign and expose, demythify and take concerted action to combat sexual violence against children, a phenomenon that affects as many as 20% of children in Europe

Over the past 25 years, developing coordinated responses to intimate partner violence and sexual violence has improved both perpetrator accountability, and victim safety and self-determination. However, preventing intimate partner violence and sexual violence from occurring is beyond the ability of any one type of organization. Preventing this violence requires a network of individuals, groups and organizations who coordinate and assess their efforts on an ongoing basis. This volume provides theoretical and practical guidance for the development of state and local prevention systems that hold the potential to eliminate persistent social problems. The development of prevention systems was informed by the data-driven public health model, systems theory and the ecological systems perspective. Strengthening Systems to Prevent Intimate Partner Violence and Sexual Violence offers guidance on how to gain participation of the right partners in developing a prevention system, and how to focus the work of that system on the critical areas of planning, implementation and capacity building. The guidance, resources and experience shared in this important collection will be invaluable to all those working towards the prevention of intimate partner violence and sexual violence. This book is based on a special issue of the Journal of Family Social Work.
There is no argument about the pervasiveness and impact of sexual violence.

Category: Sex crimes
There is no argument about the pervasiveness and impact of sexual violence. The challenge we face is how to prevent it. This issues paper begins by exploring the evolution of ideas in how to prevent sexual assault, including the role of feminist campaigns in gaining public recognition of the issue and how the goal of prevention is understood, and the theoretical ideas that informed these developments. The paper then considers local, national and international frameworks that promote multisectoral responses to sexual assault, discussing the effectiveness of current strategies, unintended consequences of various approaches and initiatives, and what can be learned. Public health approaches, the participation of men, relationship education, and risk avoidance are discussed. Lastly, the paper explores the key role of prevention education in preventing sexual violence, and the theoretical shifts that are occurring.
This guide outlines the nature, magnitude, risks and consequences of intimate partner and sexual violence.

"Intimate partner violence and sexual violence are significant global health problems and human rights issues. Under the rubric of violence against women the two overlapping issues have received increasing attention. Much of the response to these forms of violence has focussed either on advocacy, providing adequate health and legal services and ensuring safety of victims once violence is disclosed, or on screening for violence in the context of health services. When the word "prevention" is used, it is usually in reference to secondary and tertiary prevention - helping women get out of violent situations and preventing further violence. Little attention has been given to primary prevention - addressing the root causes with the goal of reducing the number of new cases. Recent hallmark publications have called for increased investment in primary prevention. As part of the Global Campaign for Violence Prevention, WHO is giving increased attention to the primary prevention of intimate partner violence and sexual violence. Preventing intimate partner and sexual violence against women: taking action and generating evidence is an important new tool for violence prevention researchers, practitioners and advocates provides a planning framework for developing policies and programmes for the prevention of intimate partner and sexual violence. This guide outlines the nature, magnitude, risks and consequences of intimate partner and sexual violence. It outlines strategies to prevent these forms of violence against women and describes how these can be tailored to the needs, capacities and resources of particular settings. It also emphasizes the importance of integrating scientific evaluation into all prevention activities in order to expand current knowledge of what works. The manual describes interventions of known effectiveness, those supported by emerging evidence, and those that could potentially be effective, but have yet to be sufficiently evaluated for their impact. For instance, school-based programmes to prevent violence occurring in "dating relationships" have been shown to be effective in randomized trials in the USA and Canada. Evidence is emerging for the effectiveness of empowerment approaches which use microfinance combined with gender-equality training or are based on communications and relationship skills training such as the Stepping Stones training package, which has been widely used in low- and middle-income countries. Strategies that aim to prevent intimate partner and sexual violence through reducing the harmful use of alcohol also show promise. A six-step framework for planning, implementing and evaluating such prevention programmes and policies is presented. This document is primarily aimed at policy-makers, programme planners and donors from public health and related sectors who seek to advance the prevention of intimate partner and sexual violence against women. In addition to the principal audience, other interested parties will include those working in other government sectors such as education, child welfare, social care, criminal justice and departments of women or gender equality; advocates from civil society organizations; local authorities; environmental and urban planners; and researchers."

In armed conflict, systematic sexual violence is used all too frequently as a strategic weapon to terrorize an opponent's communities. Wartime sexual violence has transitioned rapidly from a neglected human rights issue to an unambiguous security concern on the agendas of powerful states and the United Nations Security Council. What has caused this transition, and what are its impacts? Kerry F. Crawford investigates through interviews and primary-source evidence the political impetuses for this change and the results of the securitization of sexual violence. Crawford explains how change started in the 1990s with the conflicts in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda and then accelerated in the 2000s. Three case studies--the United States' response to sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1820 in 2008, and the development of the United Kingdom's Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative--illustrate that use of the weapon of war frame does not represent pure cooptation by the security sector. Rather, well-placed advocates have used the frame to push the anti-sexual violence agenda while simultaneously working to move beyond the frame's constraints.

Engaging Boys and Men in Sexual Assault Prevention: Theory, Research and Practice explores the theory, research and practice of sexual assault prevention programs for boys and men. Following an ecosystemic perspective, this book examines individual risk and protective factors for sexual aggression, as well as peer-, family-, community- and societal-level factors that influence risk for perpetrating sexual aggression. Although the book includes a discussion of other initiatives to prevent sexual aggression (i.e., bystander intervention programs, given their use among men) the primary focus is on programs that specifically seek to engage boys and men in sexual assault prevention. The author first introduce key issues, including summarizing key risk and protective factors for sexual aggression among boys and men (i.e., healthy masculinity, rape myth acceptance).The second and third sections provide an overview of the need for sexual assault prevention efforts specific to boys and men, outlining the theory and research of current prevention practices, and raise current controversies and questions facing the field. Finally, the book addresses special topics including, false accusations and military sexual violence. Addresses current controversies in the field of sexual assault risk reduction Explores existing individual-level workshops addressing men's violence against women Reviews the association between traditional masculine norms and sexual violence perpetration Discusses international sexual assault prevention programs that engage boys and men Highlight how aspects of hypermasculinity strongly correlated with assaultive behavior Provides an overview of research examining risk factors for sexual aggression Synthesizes the conceptualization of rape myths, current assessments of rape myths, and examine how rape myths function as a risk factor for perpetration

Category: Family & Relationships
This volume presents the first systematic attempt to apply a situational crime prevention rationale to understanding and preventing sexual offenses against children. Leading criminologists and sex offender researchers highlight the small but growing body of evidence demonstrating that sex crimes against children are strongly influenced by opportunities and other immediate environmental conditions. Further, the authors demonstrate that analysing the environmental contexts of offending offers new insights into prevention.
