Bringing in the Bystander: Establishing a Community of Responsibility
Participants will come to understand that everyone has an important role to play in the intervention and prevention of sexual violence. Although most of us who live in the University community will not be survivors or perpetrators of sexual violence, each of us will be a bystander or witness inappropriate behavior at some time. This program identifies a continuum of inappropriate behaviors and asks that each member of the community make a commitment to intervene. Participants will come to explore individual strategies that reflect an appropriate level of intervention needed for the inappropriate behavior. (Bringing in the Bystander is a program from the University of New Hampshire)
