Ways to intervene – distract, disrupt and delay
Provides students with knowledge to steer clear of abuse on campus.
Helps students steer clear of violence and sexual harassment.
Confidence to help others who are victims of abuse.
This bystander intervention training course provides students with the appropriate knowledge to steer clear from a range of abuse on campus.
Funded by the Office for Students this resource uses a variety of video scenarios filmed on campus to create a full bystander intervention training course. An example of one of these video scenarios can be seen here. This resource is now available for the entire higher education sector.
Scenarios involve sexual harassment and hate crime, and after going through the course learners will be clear about:
- Ways to intervene – distract, disrupt and delay
- When to intervene
- Why some people do not intervene
- Unacceptable behaviour
- The limitations of bystanders
Fully tested, this course was primarily developed for students but everyone within a university would benefit from working their way through it, due to its application to wider organisations wishing to ensure staff are also free from abuse and that people intervene when they see wrongdoing.
Jane Osmond, Research Fellow at the University of Coventry:
“In a climate of rising hate incidents, this module empowers students to recognise when they can make a difference through being an active bystander and it also helps them advocate for themselves.
Active bystander intervention can often prevent incidents escalating – for example, ‘banter’ that involves sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic and religious insults can build over time, and, at best lead to a hostile environment for others. At worst it can lead to physical assault.
This module will help students to identify such incidents and make an informed decision on whether to act including judging if it is safe to do so.”
