Bringing in the Bystander® In-Person Prevention Program
Rather than focusing strictly on the roles of perpetrator and victim, the highly interactive, researched and evaluated Bringing in the Bystander In-Person Prevention Program curriculum uses a community of responsibility approach. It teaches bystanders how to safely intervene in instances where an incident may be occurring or where there may be risk. The program, which was developed and evaluated by leading researchers and program practitioners, is customizable to reflect the locations, colloquialisms and culture of your campus. It is designed to be presented both as a 90-minute program and in a more comprehensive two session program totaling 4.5 hours.
By bringing the program to your campus you will help students, faculty, staff, and community members:
- IDENTIFY behaviors on a continuum of violence
- DEVELOP empathy for those who have experienced violence
- PRACTICE safe and appropriate intervention skills
- COMMIT to intervene before, during and after an incident of sexual abuse, relationship violence and stalking occurs
