Most presenters parachute in for a day and offer one-shot education programs. That doesn't make sense and it doesn't work! Rape prevention research reveals that single session programs are ineffective for creating long-term behavioral change.
I offer a comprehensive 2 day visit to your campus, which includes:
• A prior consultation with you to develop curriculum based on your specific campus needs;
• Engaging men, a critical component in preventing campus rape;
• Planned prevention programs that are innovative, multi-faceted and sustainable, including experiential workshops, bystander intervention coaching and peer education training;
• Program evaluation; and copies of my Campus Rape Prevention book.
Individuals’ attitudes and behaviors are changed more successfully through prevention programs that are engaging, ongoing and include men as allies.

THE MVP PROGRAM: MEN'S VIOLENCE PREVENTION
A compelling outcome of this engaging program is the transformation of a focus on men as actual or potential perpetrators of violence against women to one of defining their roles as allies and advocates. This shift in perspective greatly reduces participants' defensiveness while increasing participation and commitment. Participants develop and practice a variety of practical intervention skills.
With his engaging and humorous speaking style Todd:
Shows how homophobia and pornography contribute to male violence and sexual assault,
Illustrates how the campus culture of alcohol use and sexual assault are connected.
Teaches men practical skills to interrupt, confront and challenge violence and abuse by their peers and;
Discusses how coercion and manipulation contribute to rape.
