Time/Location: Thursday March 5, 2020 6:30-9:00 PM KCI Library
KCI parent Council invites parents of current and future KCI students to a parent workshop for Bystander Intervention Training. Active Bystander Training provides participants the opportunity to see themselves as potential Active Bystanders who can intervene when they are witness to abusive, isolating or stigmatizing behaviour. This training teaches them about pro-social behaviour, making them more aware of why they may be hesitant to intervene and encourages them to consider taking action in the future. The program focuses on behaviours relating to interpersonal violence (such as abuse, bullying/hazing, physical violence, dating/relationship violence, and sexual violence) and signs of loneliness or emotional distress.
From a community perspective, priming (Active) Bystanders to intervene when they see problematic situations can improve feelings of individual ability and effectiveness and encourages caring and support for others. This training provides motivation for personal action and helps potential Active Bystanders to envision how they can be a part of improving our community in an everyday way.
