Womenís Center of Greater Danbury brings new program to WCSU
A weekly peer discussion group, “One Man Up,” offered to students from March through April focused on men’s role in ending relationship violence. The program gave students the opportunity to discuss and learn about issues of sexuality and violence and to speak up and be heard.
“Research shows that men on a college campus can play a pivotal role in changing the attitudes of other young men regarding violence in relationships,” said Sharon Guck, WCSU coordinator of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention Services. “In my experience, opening up a dialogue with these young men can be the first step in raising awareness, changing attitudes and ultimately their behaviors.”
