The Efficacy of Peer-led Sexual Assault Preventative Education at Washington and Lee University: Variation in Explicit and Implicit Attitudes (thesis)
This research examines the relative efficacy of peer-led sexual assault awareness training. Efficacy in this case is established by the measurement of a change in attitudes among the first-year students who attended the programming (i.e. efficacy is not determined by the achievement of a threshold of desirable attitudes, but rather the ability to affect student perceptions). The attitudes measured relate to rape-supportive beliefs, comprised of gender stereotypes and rape “myths”. In addition, efficacy is also established through an increase in student understanding of the definition of consent and coercion. [Taken from the "Objective" section in Chapter 1]
