This year, Student Support is running a variety of workshops in Bystander Intervention training in the autumn term.
Tuesdays sessions will take place in 6.101, Wednesdays sessions will take place in TC2.10
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.

every Wednesday at 12.30pm-2.30pm and 3.00pm-5.00pm taking place in TC2.10
