About this Website:

This site is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Al Weitz and his innovative research focusing on date rape prevention. Dr. Weitz, Associate Professor of Communication at Truman State University, was devoted to exploring and understanding the relationship beteween interpersonal communication and the prevention of date rape.

Dr. Weitz and his student workers completed some of the following research during his tenure at Truman State University, continuing to explore the findings he addressed in his dissertation. Dr. Weitz and his students developed a Facebook page, including an “Interview with a Date Rapist” video edited into eight modules. These eight modules give insight into the mind of a male date-rapist. The Facebook page also links to a “Survivor of Rape” video, which provides testimonies from female victims of sexual assault.  The link to the Facebook page has been provided below.
