 About the workshop: Shifting Boundaries is an evidence-based, multi-level prevention program for middle school students on sexual harassment and precursors to dating violence. The program is unique in that it embraces an environmental approach that identifies multiple strategies to support young people – both school-wide interventions and classroom lessons. Shifting Boundaries has both a classroom component and a component for school-wide programming. It is designed to reduce dating violence and sexual harassment among middle school students. Join this conversation to learn about the program’s multiple strategies, to reflect on the lessons learned from implementing the program, and to review findings of a multi-year study of the program.


About the presenter: Nan Stein is a senior research scientist at the Center for Research on Women, Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College where she directs national research projects on sexual harassment, teen dating violence, gender violence, and bullying in schools. She frequently gives lectures, keynote addresses, and training to school personnel, and has served as an expert witness in lawsuits on sexual harassment and child sexual abuse in K-12 schools.


She was co-principal investigator and lead author of the Seventeen magazine (September 1992) survey on sexual harassment in the schools, Secrets in Public: Sexual Harassment in Our Schools. Stein has co-authored three teaching guides: Flirting or Hurting? A Teacher’s Guide on Student-to-Student Sexual Harassment in Schools for Grades 6 through 12 (1994); Bullyproof (1996) that explores teasing and bullying in elementary grades as the antecedents of sexual harassment; and Gender Violence/Gender Justice: an Interdisciplinary Teaching Guide for Teachers of English, Literature, Social Studies, Psychology, Health, Peer Counseling, and Family and Consumer Sciences (grades 7-12) (1999).
