Preventing Sexual Violence

Written by leading experts in the field, this timely collection highlights current strategies and thinking in relation to prevention of sexual violence and critically considers the limitations of these frameworks.

Combining psychological, criminological, sociological and legal perspectives, it explores academic, practitioner and survivor points of view. It addresses broad themes, from cultures of sexual harassment to the role of media in oversexualising women and girls, as well as specific issues including violence against children and older people.

For researchers, practitioners and students alike, this is an invaluable resource that maps new approaches for practice and prevention.

“This original volume closes the knowledge gap on preventing sexual violence against women and girls by offering a solution focused approach.” Louise Dixon, Victoria University of Wellington

“Put an end to sexual violence against women and children. Challenge and eradicate the patriarchal values and norms that underpin it. Prevent it through a multi-sectorial approach. Read this book.” Pamela Davies, Northumbria University

"An innovative and comprehensive examination of sexual violence and approaches to its prevention. A timely, critical and cross-disciplinary book. A must read for scholars, students and practitioners alike." Clare Gunby, University of Birmingham

Stephanie Kewley is Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University.
