I. SVRI Online Discussion Forum: Multiple Perpetrator Rape

The SVRI would like to invite you to participate and update you on the moderated SVRI Online Discussion on Multiple Perpetrator Rape. The discussion has been progressing at pace, so we wanted to briefly update the SVRI membership on the issues we've been considering (a fully summary of the discussions to date can be found on the forum) and reiterate our call for you to take part. We started the discussion by posing three questions, a brief summary of each is below:

1. Are all perpetrators of multiple perpetrator rape equally responsible for their actions?
We are beginning to discuss the different roles that a person might take in an MPR, there has been some consideration of Leaders and Followers, their different treatment needs and their risk of reoffending. Contributors are reporting that they suspect that leaders might be more deviant (sexually), callous, sadistic and more psychopathic. Emerging questions are: What is known about the men in MPR situations who stand up for the victim (so called defenders)? How are these men different to those who lead or just go along with the assault?

2. Multiple perpetrator rape is only a significant problem in certain populations/social groups? 
We have agreed that MPR is not more problematic in particular ethnic or social groups. However the recent alleged MPR of an 11-year-old girl by at least 18 boys and young men in east Texas, USA seems to have stirred racial tensions which raise questions about perceptions of MPR which we'd like to discuss further. 

3. How can we best tackle multiple perpetrator rape (in terms of: 1) prevention; 2) interventions with perpetrators; 3) supporting victims; 4) improving investigation and prosecution)? 
We have had less discussion about how to tackle MPR so please let us know what you think needs to be done in this area in terms of research and practice. We're particularly interested in how we can use education to aid prevention.

To participate in this event register for the online discussion forum at: http://www.svri.org/svriforums/login!default.jspa?referrer=index.jspa <http://www.svri.org/svriforums/login!default.jspa?referrer=index.jspa>  (registration is free).
