The Higher Education Center’s Prevention Update: Bystander InterventionNow Posted

According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, bystander intervention programs teach potential witnesses safe and positive ways that they can act to prevent or intervene when there is a risk for sexual violence. “A bystander approach gives community members specific roles that they can use in preventing sexual violence, including naming and stopping situations before they happen, stepping in during an incident, and speaking out against ideas and behaviors that support sexual violence. This approach develops skills to be an effective and supportive ally to survivors after an assault has taken place.”

To view online or download Bystander Intervention, please visit the Prevention Updates page on the Center’s Web site.
