Bystander Intervention Training

Have you ever been in a situation where you thought “I should have done something to have prevented…, or I should have helped…” Bystander Intervention training will give you the tools necessary to help intervene when faced with difficult circumstances. Be one of the many students to Step Up and help to respond to any instances of harassment, sexual violence, or other situations that could create an unsafe space for UWM community members.

This 90 minute training provides the knowledge and skills necessary to identify and help intervene where community members may be in distress.  Examples of this include; alcohol related issues, hazing, depression, sexual violence/assault, and relationship abuse. Join the other students who have become active bystanders.

Bystander Intervention Training consists of knowledge and skills on:

  • Addressing barriers to intervention
  • Addressing current issues happening on campus using data collected from Norris Health Center
  • Empower student to become active bystanders, by take responsibility for taking care of one another
  • Strategies for intervention with real life scenarios that a college student could experience using the Step Up! and S.E.E model approaches.
  • Being aware about resources on and off campus
  • Apply skills in relevant scenarios

Each training is provided at no charge to UWM students and are capped at 25 students per session. Are you ready to STEP UP?!  If so, find a workshop here.
