 Bringing in the Bystander

Trainer(s): Women’s Center Staff
Duration: 90 minutes
Bringing in the Bystander® is an evidence-based bystander intervention program. Rather than focusing strictly on the roles of perpetrator and victim, the highly interactive Bringing in the Bystander® curriculum uses a community responsibility approach. It teaches bystanders how to safely intervene in instances where sexual violence, relationship violence or stalking may be occurring or where there may be risk that it will occur.

Participants will :

  • Gain an understanding of what bystander responsibility is through the presentation of concepts and examples.
  • Apply the concept of bystander responsibility to sexual and relationship violence and stalking.
  • Identify the range of unacceptable sexual behaviors and become aware of the prevalence and context of sexual violence.
  • Understand the variety of negative consequences of sexual and relationship violence and stalking for victims and communities.
  • Understand the role community members can play in preventing sexual and relationship violence and stalking and reducing its negative consequences.
