This is a timely seminar that follows on from White Ribbon Day observances, and continuiing the 16 Dqays of Activism against Violence against Women.

Making a positive approach to men, harnessing their motivation and providing them with real opportunities to make a difference... is an international development in violence prevention that can make a real difference in New Zealand.

Men can provide the positive influence other men need. By concentrating on men’s social norms there is a real opportunity to undermine the social environment that supports violence. And by transforming the links between masculinity and violence there can be real pressure to stop violence. This presentation will give you an understanding of the benefits of involving men, the theoretical basis of this work, motivation that can be used, what engages men, the challenges to be managed and future developments you could use effectively.

The presentation is based on the next Clearinghouse Issues Paper, which will be released on White Ribbon Day (Monday 25 November). The paper is written by presenter Garth Baker.
