WORKSHOPS/TRAINING

  • BRINGING IN THE BYSTANDER (Program)

    • The program teaches bystanders how to safely intervene in instances where an incident may be occurring or where there may be risk. Through in-depth discussion of issues and role-playing of common violence scenarios, participants come to understand how they play a part in proactively preventing sexual and relationship violence, how they can help survivors get the help and support they need, and how they can contribute to the creation of a campus climate that reflects a commitment to safety for all.
