Pointers Stick Together and Everyone Plays a Role in Ending Violence
UW-Stevens Point has selected Bringing in the Bystander
from the Prevention Innovations Research Center for our in-person bystander intervention curriculum.
The highly interactive, researched and evaluated Bringing in the Bystander prevention program curriculum uses a community of responsibility approach. It teaches bystanders how to safely intervene in instances where an incident may be occurring or where there may be risk. The program is designed to be presented both as a 90-minute program and in a more comprehensive two session program totaling 4.5 hours.
By bringing the program to your group or student organization, you will help students, faculty, staff, and community members:
IDENTIFY behaviors on a continuum of violence
DEVELOP empathy for those who have experienced violence
PRACTICE safe and appropriate intervention skills
COMMIT to intervene before, during and after an incident of sexual abuse, relationship violence and stalking occurs.
