On June 5 and 6, 2012, four members of the Swedish national governmental organization Freedom From Violence: Men for Gender Equality visited UNH to talk with members of the UNH research unit Prevention Innovations: Research and Practices for Ending Violence Against Women about adapting the Bringing in the BystanderTM and Know Your PowerTM prevention programs in Sweden. During the visit, members of Prevention Innovations spoke with the delegation about the research, evaluation, and adaptation of both prevention strategies; trained them on how to facilitate Bringing in the Bystander, an in-person prevention program; and discussed ways that Prevention Innovations could collaborate with them on the implementation and evaluation of bystander intervention prevention strategies to end sexual and relationship violence and stalking.
