Sexual violence against women has persisted throughout time and has proven to carry many detrimental psychological and health complications. Individuals at a higher risk for experiencing sexual violence are women of lower socioeconomic status and ethnic minorities. This curriculum was developed as a prevention program that will serve to educate young Latinas in the topic of sexual violence and enhance awareness of personal values about sex, relationships and stress management. The curriculum highlights the role that ethnicity plays in the main risk factors involved sexual violence. Specifically, young Latinas can be provided with valuable psycho education and the knowledge needed to protect themselves against the many forms of sexual violence in their communities.
