White Paper: Effects of The Men’s Program on Male Soldiers’ Bystander Intervention, Likelihood of Raping, and Attitudes Toward Rape: A Pretest/Posttest Controlled Study, Final Report, United States Army - Europe(2010)
AbstractNon-commissioned officers were trained to present a one-hour rape prevention workshop, The Men’s Program, to approximately 250 soldiers in the U.S. Army stationed in Germany. Another group of approximately 250 soldiers saw a Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program unit brief presented by a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator/Family Advocacy Program Manager. Participants were administered pretests and posttests to determine the effectiveness of these two programs. This report details the findings of the pretest and posttest assessment. An unsuccessful attempt was made to collect data 6 months after programs were presented. Valuable lessons were learned that will be useful for future attempts to assess long term program effects. This executive summary highlights major findings from the pretest/posttest assessment. The results in this report provide research-based evidence to a confidence level of 1 in 1,000 that The Men’s Program made men better and outperformed the comparison group.
