About the EAAA Sexual Assault Resistance Education Program

EAAA has been listed as a ‘Promising Program’ by Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development.

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.

The EAAA program is the only program available that has been evaluated in a clinical trial and shown to significantly reduce the incidence of rape and other forms of sexual assault for at least one year. It is one critical piece of a comprehensive strategy to address the high incidence of rape and other forms of sexual violence on our campuses.
