Speaker information

Dr. Rikke Holm Bramsen, Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychology, University of Southern Denmark.

Adolescent sexual violence is a significant problem, with victims and societies experiencing far-reaching social, physical and mental health consequences following incidents of forced sex. In order to reduce the prevalence, there is a need for primary prevention initiatives, that is, efforts to stop the violence from occurring in the first place.

In 2012 the Danish Crime Prevention Council commissioned a Danish review on international primary prevention programs. The review was published in 2013, and has been followed by other initiatives, including a longitudinal study on adolescent sexual violence.

In the seminar Dr. Rikke Holm Bramsen will discuss the evidence gathered in these initiatives.
