Schools place a high premium on creating safe learning environments for their students, and they possess exciting potential to foster climates of respect that render hurtful or harassing behavior rare and unacceptable. With their ability to draw staff, teachers, youth, and parents into school-wide prevention efforts, school personnel are uniquely situated to proactively address issues of sexual mistreatment and to reduce students' exposure to this harmful conduct. This chapter reviews approaches to the prevention of sexual harassment and assault among adolescents and is a companion to Chapter 8, which focuses on interventions used with victims and perpetrators of sexual mistreatment.
