Interrupt Microaggressions, Harassment and Assault to Build a Culture of Inclusion
Position your students with the resources, skills, and confidence they need to safely interrupt and intervene in potentially volatile situations.
Now more than ever it is critical that your institution has a comprehensive bystander intervention program in place that addresses the fundamental safety of your students and incorporates a multi-dimensional approach to mitigate inappropriate, discriminatory or unsafe behavior.
Our expert presenter will help you and your colleagues better understand the current trends in bystander intervention, ways of applying tangible skillsets to address the plethora of concerns your students face, and the benefits of adapting bystander intervention programs that center students’ experiences and customize realistic responses to best fit the critical needs of your campus community.
Create bystander intervention training that builds tangible, usable, and applicable skills for appropriate intervention and builds a culture of inclusion.
As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Recognize the culminating effects of microaggressions, biased behavior and speech, and the emotional and physical labor it takes for students to address this (or be confronted with this) on their own – adapt and improve your current bystander intervention training curriculum to position your students with the resources, skills, and confidence they need to speak up and intervene in potentially volatile situations.
- Recognize the variety of ways bystander intervention can support positive outcomes within the campus community – create a climate that engages and supports students and promotes an inclusive environment that does not tolerate violence of any form.
- Identify the 4 D’s (Direct, Delegate, Distract, Document) and how to incorporate them into programming, engagement and student interactions – ensure a multi-dimensional approach to address and mitigate campus violence and create a more inclusive and just community.
- Apply tenants of bystander intervention into Diversity, Equity and Inclusion work - provide essential opportunities for community members to practice these skills so they feel self-assured in their ability to interrupt various forms of violence including microaggressions, harassment, and assault as well as support others in making healthier choices related to drugs and alcohol.
