Event description
Bystander Intervention Training equips Queen's students with the skills to intervene and prevent sexual violence.

About this Event

Using an intersectional, community-based approach, Bystander Intervention Training Sessions give students, faculty, and staff the tools needed to recognize and respond to sexual violence. Facilitated by the Division of Student Affairs, the programming is administered by a trained team of undergraduate and graduate student leaders.

The program aims to empower individuals and equip them with the knowledge and skills to intervene in an incident of sexual violence. By working with and engaging the whole Queen’s community, we hope to raise awareness of sexual violence and shift societal norms in order to prevent it from happening in our campus community.

Learning outcomes:

1. Articulate the definitions of sexual assault and consent

2. Identify myths and facts about sexual assault

3. Understand the bystander effect and barriers to active intervention

4. Safely intervene when witnessing unsafe or inappropriate behaviour
