Partners in Prevention: Social Welfare

Sexual violence is a serious community health issue that requires a community-wide response. As part of ongoing efforts to prevent violence in our community, the School of Social Welfare and the Sexual Assault Prevention & Education Center have partnered to offer bystander intervention training. Click here to learn more about this partnership and the upcoming Bringing in the Bystander trainings!

Bringing in the Bystander

Bringing in the Bystander® (BITB) is a bystander education and training program developed for college students that is imperative in primary prevention work on college campuses. The program provides participants with the skills to help them act when they see behavior that puts others at risk for violence, victimization, or perpetration. 

Steps to intervention:
1. Observe. Realize that something is happening or happened.
2. Assess. Consider what you need to intervene safely.
3. ACT: Ask for help, Create a distraction, Talk directly
4. Follow Up. Determine what follow up support can be offered.
