This project will involve a graduate student in the Department of Social Work, Kwynn Gonzales-Pons, as well as work with an Assistant Professor at Oklahoma State University, Corrine Schwartz. In this project, we will be designing an RCT experiment which will assign students to one of two trainings: the traditional bystander intervention training as required by SB 134 and clips of Law and Order SVU with guided discussion questions. Attitudes on gender-based violence will be measured with surveys before and after.
