This interactive, train-the-trainer workshop provides a sustainable way for faculty to implement the Faculty Bystander Intervention workshops with colleagues in their academic unit. Participants will gain the knowledge and skills required to facilitate the Faculty Bystander Intervention Workshop in which faculty participants learn the facts about sexual violence in America, learn how to apply the five bystander intervention steps, discuss the culture of sexual violence on college campuses, understand mandated reporting guidelines, and practice bystander intervention skills using real-life scenarios. They will also gain an understanding of basic information and statistics about sexual violence and the bystander model of prevention education. Participants will also learn about best practices to assist students who disclose that they have experienced sexual violence. The workshop will also include a discussion of potential issues that might arise during the workshop facilitation as well as ideas on how to customize the workshop to meet the needs of different faculty groups.
Prerequisite for this workshop is attendance at a Faculty Bystander Intervention Workshop at TCU.
