Active Bystander Training

Learn more about the Against Sexual Violence campaign and sign up for Active Bystander training here

Active Bystander training sessions are your opportunity to get involved, get trained and play a role in changing campus cultures and battling sexual violence right here in our own community.

Join us for a free, highly interactive two and a half hour session, which uses a community responsibility approach to teach bystanders how to safely intervene in instances where an incident may be occurring, or where someone may be at risk. The curriculum has been developed by the University of New Hampshire’s ‘Bringing In The Bystander’ programme, and it will teach you a robust and evidence-based set of skills to identify and intervene in instances of misconduct.

The training includes how to:

  • Identify behaviours on a spectrum of violence.
  • Develop empathy for those who have experienced violence.
  • Practice safe and appropriate intervention skills.
  • Commit to intervene before, during and after an incident of sexual violence, harassment, abuse or misconduct occurs.
