“Así no iré a la cárcel”: Segundo año del programa adaptado de PROMUNDO para erradicar la violencia sexista

Translated title of the contribution: “So I Won’t Go to Jail”: Year Two of a PROMUNDO-Adapted Program to Eradicate Gender-Based Violence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper presents evaluation results of a PROMUNDO-adapted program enacted to reduce gender-biased violence among preadolescent boys. It is a follow-up to an earlier, pilot study of the program curriculum. Outcomes that are examined include promoting critical thinking regarding masculinity, aggression, and violence; fostering skills necessary for effective communication, prosocial emotional expression, and non-violent conflict resolution. While quantitative findings in this small sample do not indicate statistically significant results, qualitative analyses indicate that participants were better equipped to express their emotions, particularly anger, and to resolve conflict in non-violent ways that may slow the school-to-prison pipeline — which the participating boys were at-risk of entering.
