Active Bystanders’ Training: Creating Safety in Contentious Times

Thursday, March 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm

If you are a bystander witnessing a harmful situation, you have a choice to make. Do you do something? What do you do?Suggested donation $10-20 (but no one turned away).Active Bystanders’ Training helps participants recognize when they are bystanders, analyze situations, and evaluate the consequences for everyone involved. The training heightens bystanders’ power. It teaches how bystanders can interrupt harm doing and generate positive actions by others. Active bystandership does not mean aggression against the harm doer. It means taking responsible action to help people in need instead of remaining passive and becoming complicit. Bystanders gain competencies they need if they decide to act when they witness something they feel is unfair, or wrong, or troubling.If needed, snow date will be 3/16Presented by Quabbin Mediation, 13 South Main St., Orange, MA; trainingactivebystanders.org.
