Intervention Skills: how to step in

About this Event

Would you know what to do if you saw someone being threatened?

Is it up to you to act if a vulnerable person is in danger?

Whose job is it to prevent bullying and harassment or predatory behaviour?

Anyone can find themselves as a bystander, witnessing an act of discrimination, injustice, threatening behaviour, bullying, harassment, abuse or other unacceptable behaviour.

Knowing how to intervene in a case of danger or injustice is a core life skill

which can often protect the vulnerable and prevent serious harm.

“The Bystander Effect” was named following the murder of Kitty Genovese, when it was reported that dozens of bystanders heard the attack and did nothing.

You can make a different choice.

This crucial course will teach you the practical steps any bystander can take to reduce risk and make a difference in the moment, in either a personal or professional context.

Content covered includes:

• Bearing witness: the power of presence

• Evaluating the situation

• Signs that help is needed
