Primary Prevention

What is Primary Prevention?

The Primary Prevention of Sexual Violence involves stopping sexual violence and assault before it occurs.  The Family Crisis Center of East Texas is committed to helping our community become educated on the issue of sexual assault and the negative impact it has on society. The Family Crisis Center of East Texas formed a Primary Prevention Team to enhance the services they are committed to provide to the communities they serve.

The Family Crisis Center’s Prevention team uses a curriculum that is approved by the Office of the Attorney General. The content is taught in an interactive workshop format and it emphasizes the changing ideas, attitudes, and beliefs that are supportive of sexual assault and violence prevention.

Topics discussed include:

  • Components of healthy relationships
  • Risk factors that contribute to sexual violence
  • How risk factors are portrayed in the media
