Engaging Native Men & Boys in Sexual Violence Prevention:

EMP Facilitator Guide Cover Page

The use of the Making Space to Rise video and education tools are intended to help create discussion. The important thing to remember is that you are getting people to talk about the subject of sexual violence in our communities in a broad way, ranging from where we learn it to how we perpetuate the problem.  This information may be new to a lot of people while extremely basic to others, so in these types of mixed groups the conversation amongst the audience provides the best type of learning.  This can also mean conflict. Conflict is not always a bad thing because it can lead to self-exploration and new understanding. However, if conflict is not managed well in the room, it can destroy powerful learning opportunities for all involved. For anyone facilitating groups and/or community presentations, conflict can arise at any time, and well-honed facilitation skills are always useful
