This is a somber reminder that sexual aggression, violence, and rape are chronic and serious problems on college campuses today. The volume proposes proactive strides toward stopping such violence. It addresses the role of alcohol and rape, includes the latest information on club drugs and drug-facilitated rape, and explores the special issues surrounding gay, lesbian and transgender violence. Chapters also address changing "the culture" found in, and often fostered by, fraternities and sororities as well as some athletic teams. It puts forward constructive strategies for preventing sexual assault, managing anger, group counseling for survivors, and more. This book will aid counselors and administrators in understanding and stopping sexual assault on college campuses across the country.
