Join the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault and the American Democracy Project at Weber State University for a Bystander Intervention Train-the-Trainer Workshop! Attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion for attending this training.
The Workshop will be facilitated by Marty Liccardo (Men's Engagement Specialist with the Utah Department of Health) with a focus on the newly released Bystander Intervention Curriculum "Upstanding: Stepping Up to Prevent Violence in Utah".
Bystander Intervention Education is a critical strategy meant to encourage community members to take action in situations that signal risk for sexual violence, from countering verbal harassment, to finding safe ways to intervene if witnessing potential sexual assault. Bystander strategies increase a person's confidence in their ability to intervene, reduce victim blaming attitudes, and strengthen intervention skills so bystanders will put thought into action.
This Workshop, and additional skill-building Workshops to follow, will prepare attendees to carry out Bystander Intervention Education within the community. By the end of the training you will:
- be able to define and identify harm and violence
- be able to define and identify bystander intervention opportunities
- have learned skills and behaviors to prevent harm or violence
- understand and be able to articulate what harm and bystander intervention are and why it is important to get involved ourselves.
We appreciate all of our community relationships that have made this event possible. The text above is courtesy of the Davis County CARES Coalition who hosted for our first Bystander Intervention Training in 2017.
