Program for Male Soldiers on Sex, Dating and Alcohol
“Piloting ProHealth: A Program for Male Soldiers on Sex, Dating and Alcohol-Use at Fort Bragg”
The proposed project will provide data concerning dating and sexual interactions that occur on Fort Bragg, North Carolina, in addition to piloting a sexual assault prevention program through the use of social norms and bystander intervention concepts. The investigators will be able to use data and feedback gained from this research to help reduce rates of sexual assault in the military by providing a sexual assault prevention program tailored to at risk male Soldiers that can be disseminated across military posts.
The purpose of the surveys is to collect quantitative data to determine the relative impact of the intervention program on participants' sexual behaviors and alcohol use.
These Motivational Interviews aim to promote change in behavior through open-ended questions, affirmations, and reflections.
The purpose of the group workshop is to create discussions surrounding perceived and collective social norms found among male soldiers that have been connected to sexual aggression. These discussions are used to promote bystander intervention among participants and help identify the prosocial attitudes that may be more common than previously perceived.
