Event description

Description

Come get trained to be an agent of change in your community!

We all want to put an end to sexual violence, but many of us
don't know where to begin. Hone your skills to recognize and address sexual violence in all its forms and strengthen community support for survivors through this evidence-based workshop!

Bringing in the Bystander® is an evidence-based sexual violence prevention program. The bystander model approaches all participants as neither a potential perpetrator nor victim, but instead as people who would want to be a part of the solution. This training engages students to understand the role that they play in preventing sexual assault by becoming an active bystander. Through this curriculum participants will:

  1. Understand the concept of prosocial bystander intervention

  2. Be able to identify a continuum of inappropriate sexual behavior

  3. Analyze how culture and media messages play a role in sexual violence

  4. Develop empathy for those who have experienced sexual violence

  5. Understand their role in bystander intervention and changing social norms

  6. Understand their own barriers to bystander intervention and techniques to overcome them

  7. Develop skills to safely intervene as a bystander

  8. Gain commitment to intervene in the case of sexual violence before, during and after an incident

  9. Understand the impacts of sexual assault on a survivor and be able to identify ways to support a friend/loved one

  10. Be able to identify local resources available to both survivors of sexual violence and those who support survivor
