Lisa Olson, MS, Counseling and Psychological Services, will discuss the Green Dot strategy - a comprehensive approach to the primary prevention of violence that capitalizes on the power of peer and cultural influence across all levels of the socio-ecological model. Informed by social change theory, the model targets all community members as potential agents of social change. Green Dot is built on the premise that in order to measurably reduce the perpetration of power-based personal violence, a cultural shift is necessary. In order to create a cultural shift, a critical mass of people will need to engage in a new behavior or set of behaviors that will make violence less sustainable within any given community. The “new behavior” is a green dot. Green dots are choices, actions, attitudes, words or behaviors that actively or visibly end violence and express utter intolerance for power-based personal violence. Join us at this free workshop for an overview of the Green Dot Strategy and learn how something as simple as a single green dot can change the entire campus culture. Pizza will be served. Presented by Women’s Studies Center.
