Bringing in the Bystander® is a bystander intervention workshop with a robust evidence-base.

Rather than focusing strictly on the roles of perpetrator and victim, the highly interactive Bringing in The Bystander® curriculum uses a community responsibility approach. It teaches bystanders how to safely intervene in instances where sexual violence, relationship violence or stalking may be occurring or where there may be a risk that it will occur.

Sexual violence

Sexual violence is any unwanted sexual act or activity, including rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment. It can be perpetrated by a stranger or by someone known and even trusted, including a friend, a colleague, family member, partner or ex-partner.


These workshops will help students, academics, professional services staff and community members to:

  • Identify behaviours on a continuum of violence
  • Develop empathy for those who have experienced violence
  • Practise safe and appropriate intervention skills
  • Commit to intervene before, during and after an incident of sexual abuse, relationship violence or stalking occurs

The Essex Equality pages have more information.

These training sessions will run between 29 January 2018 until 7 March 2018 every:

  • Monday 6.00pm - 8.00pm
  • Wednesday 2.00pm - 4.00pm
