Using Story to Persuade Men: Narrative & Healthy Masculinity in the Prevention of Sexual Assault

HALF-DAY TRAINING. Ironically statistics show that people more easily recall stories, not statistics. “Using Story,” based on Men Can Stop Rape’s groundbreaking use of storytelling as part of the Healthy Masculinity Action Project, prepares professionals to use storytelling related to unhealthy and healthy masculinity as an effective persuasive tool to engage men in sexual assault prevention.
