What is Prevention?

The Family Crisis Center of East Texas is committed to helping our community prevent sexual assault and domestic violence through education and awareness. This is achieved through trainings and presentations by the agency’s Prevention Team.

The agency’s prevention content is taught in an interactive format, emphasizing the changing ideas, attitudes, beliefs and cultures that are supportive of the prevention of sexual assault and domestic violence.

Topics discussed include:

  • Components of healthy and unhealthy relationships

  • Risk factors that contribute to sexual violence and how they are portrayed in media

  • The importance of consent
