PREVENTION RESOURCES

Tip of the Week


Steps to Address Hate Speech

Hate speech. We hear it around campus all too often, whether it’s meant as a private joke between friends or a hastily uttered insult.

Prevention educators face a conundrum on how to address this language. One approach involves confronting the language as it arises and calling out individuals who use language that marginalizes and communicates hatred toward another group. While I appreciate this tactic, I also think there is an important caveat in approaching an individual who is using this kind of language.

To understand how to most effectively address hate speech through bystander intervention, click here.

Spotlight

VETO Violence, Understanding Evidence

Violence Education Tools Online (VETO), an initiative from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), is an evolving resource for the growing number of Americans committed to stopping violence before it begins. Understanding Evidence helps practitioners use evidence based decision-making in preventing community violence.

Practicing Prevention Tip


August 2013

SCOPE is excited to share the August 2013 Practicing Prevention Tip, authored by Visiting Scholar, Jason Laker, Ph.D.
