Sexual harassment on campus : a guide for administrators, faculty, and students by Bernice Resnick Sandler( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Well known for their research on the effects of sexual harassment in educational settings, Bernice R. Sandler and Robert J. Shoop are among the first educators to propose specific steps colleges and universities can take to offset the pernicious effects of sexual harassment in the academic community. Together with the other expect contributors to this volume, they have created an up-to-the-minute report on the current status of sexual harassment in higher education, including what colleges and universities are doing - and should do - to address this controversial and difficult issue." "The writers define sexual harassment and discuss its legal implications in higher education settings, then explore the actions academic communities can take to prevent sexual harassment and respond to it when it occurs. Comprehensive and insightful, the book provides sociological and psychological perspectives, as well as current legal thought, accounts of actual sexual harassment incidents, and step-by-step guidelines for policy development and implementation."--Jacket

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consideration is given to why this type of rape occurs and information is provided on how to avoid date rape and what to do if it occurs. Elements in date rape include use of alcohol and drugs and the woman's giving mixed signals to the male.

Twenty ways to avoid situations that might lead to date rape are suggested, including: examining one's feelings about sex and deciding early if sex is desired with a date and having taxi fare or means to leave a date. Attention is also directed to men who accept responsibility not to harm another person, along with danger signals that may identify men whom women should avoid. Suggestions are included on what to do if someone tries to force sexual activity or does commit rape. Three stages of the rape trauma syndrome are covered: trauma, denial, and resolution.
