It presents guidelines for treating others with respect and for changing actions that are contributing to someone else's harassing behavior. A checklist presents the specific behaviors that represent date rape, and guidelines emphasize the importance of communication, respect for someone's refusal of sexual involvement, and reporting of sexual victimization.
