Bystander Intervention Workshop

May 16, 2024

8-10 a.m.

Oxford Center Conference Center – 2nd Floor 301 Grant Street Pittsburgh, PA 15219

Bystander intervention is built on the idea that we all play a role in creating safe public spaces for each other when we see our neighbors, community members or co-workers facing bias, discrimination or harassment.  This training will familiarize individuals with the concept and practical use of bystander intervention. Designed as a skills building workshop, this training seeks to move beyond bystander theory and help the participant become more comfortable in intervening when unsafe or unprofessional behaviors are present.

Objectives:

  • Gain practical knowledge of intervention methods and best practices around use
  • Discuss the barriers to interventions that occur and build skills around how to overcome barriers
  • Develop the skills of how to implement various intervention methods
  • Build skills around practical ways to assess safety and possible backlash in potential situations
  • Increase comfortability and likelihood of intervening in potentially dangerous or uncomfortable situations
