Shifting Boundaries: Lessons on Relationships for Students in Middle School is an evidence-based, multi-level prevention program for middle school students on sexual harassment and precursors to dating violence. The program is unique in that it embraces an environmental approach that identifies multiple strategies to support young people – both school-wide interventions and classroom lessons.

The Shifting Boundaries program works to prevent sexual harassment and dating violence in middle schools by raising awareness about gender-based violence and promoting healthy relationship norms. Included are lesson plans with handouts for students, awareness posters, a webinar recording, and evidence for the effectiveness of the Shifting Boundaries curriculum.

Lesson plans and additional resources are available on VAWnet.org.

For many of us, the collective trauma of COVID-19 and racial injustice, including the white supremacist, anti-Black murders in Buffalo on May 14th, has greatly impacted our mental health and wellness. Our collective grief, pain, and anger can feel at times like too much to bear. But we know that just as all forms of violence are interconnected, so too must be our response to it. This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter highlights the role of community connection in promoting mental well-being. Resources feature strategies for trauma-informed community building, community care, and healing justice.
