Best practice principles for sexual violence primary prevention activities in New Zealand.
What's proven to work for all sexual violence primary prevention activities.
Children and young people
Prevention activities for children and young people should aim to detect abuse early and emphasise that children shouldn't blame themselves if abuse happens.
Following Kaupapa Māori principles helps us to address the need for culturally responsive prevention activities that strengthen whānau and communities.
It's important to incorporate elements of Pacific values, spirituality, and culture into work with Pasifika clients, and to recognise the differences between Pacific groups.
Migrants and refugees
Although little research has been done around the effectiveness of prevention activities for this group, several factors place refugee and migrant individuals at greater risk of violence and mean that they are less likely to report abuse.
People who identify as LGBTQI are over-represented as victims of sexual violence. Skilled facilitators and prevention activities which include examples of healthy LGBTQI relationships can increase awareness among people from all audiences.
People with disabilities
Skilled facilitators are crucial for developing and evaluating prevention activities which build a safe learning environment that isn't dependent on language or literacy.
