Active Bystander Intervention Training


Christopher Ellinger

We all witness situations where we want, but hesitate, to intervene. Will our response make things better or worse?  Could we get hurt? An active bystander is someone who not only witnesses a situation, but also speaks up or takes steps to keep a situation from escalating or helps to defuse a situation. Learn how to become a more effective active bystander. In this hands-on workshop you will learn to evaluate a situation to determine a safe and effective response. How others see us—our physical size, gender, race, social status—is an important part of how we assess a useful way to intervene. Learn a variety of tactics for handling these situations and practice tactics to discover which may work best for you. Leave this evening feeling more empowered and better informed.
