Introduction to Bystander Awareness lunch and learn

ACU staff are invited to take part in Introduction to Bystander Awareness lunch and learn training, as part of Bystander Awareness Week at ACU.

The 1-hour session will consist of a 35-40 minute presentation, allowing 10-15 minutes for discussion and questions at the end, with topics covered including:

  • What is the ‘bystander effect’ and why we may hesitate in intervening when we see a person who may need help, or who is experiencing violence or problematic behaviour
  • the four different categories of ways we can intervene in a situation when someone may need help
  • assessing risk and context in a situation to understand the safest and most effective way to intervene
  • the importance of ‘being someone who does something’ and the consequences when we don’t intervene.
