July 20th, 2017 – For immediate release
The Department of University Safety has recently transitioned from the Rape Aggression Defense System course and will be offering a new program entitled Enhanced, Assess, Acknowledge, Act (EAAA) Sexual Assault Resistance Education Program. The program will be offered in partnership with Equity Services/Sexual Assault Support Services.
The EAAA sexual assault resistance education program is a 12 hour small-group, empirically based intervention designed specifically for 1st year university women. The EAAA program is based on theory, research evidence, and best practices for helping women resist acquaintance sexual assault. With funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Ontario Women’s Health Council, the program was developed, revised, and pilot tested by Dr. Charlene Senn at the University of Windsor over a ten-year period.
