Preventing campus sexual and relationship violence through a bystander intervention approach.
What is bystander intervention?
Bystander intervention refers to a unique, accessible approach to changing the way community members understand their role in prevention. Bystander trainings work by increasing knowledge of warning signs that something is wrong, teaching realistic skills to intervene, and correcting misperceptions of social norms.
Rather than approaching women as potential victims with risk-reduction strategies or men as potential perpetrators, bystander intervention assumes that everyone has a stake in reducing sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, and sexual harassment to make our campus safer.
