Bystander Intervention Training

Many health and wellness and social justice problems involve bystanders: people who want to act and want to help but don't. This training provides a framework for explaining bystander behavior and teaches skills for intervening in problematic situations that may involve alcohol or other drugs, assault or violence, eating disorders, and more.  You can ALL make a difference. Everyone can step up and intervene, from freshmen to seniors, student leaders, peers, and members of our community. You are the catalysts for change and you can set the example, for helping behaviors and intervention. (90 minutes)
