Bystander intervention is an important leadership skill for all members of our community.
In this workshop, participants will define consent, bystander intervention, and sexual
violence. Through real-life examples we will discuss common barriers to intervention
and the bystander effect. In small groups, participants will identify situations that
call for intervention, learn bystander intervention strategies, and how to support
students who have experienced sexual violence. While this training is focused on preventing
sexual violence, these bystander intervention skills can be applied to any unsafe
Safe Squad Goals
This interactive workshop teaches participants bystander intervention and emergency

This training teaches participants how to identify if a relationship is healthy or
unhealthy and learn strategies for helping a friend in an unhealthy or abusive relationship.
In addition to discussing unhealthy relationships, this workshop allows participants
to assess their own communication styles and develop skills for healthy communication
in romantic and platonic relationships. Take away resources about healthy and unhealthy
relationships are provided.
This workshop, ideal for students who are likely to receive a high volume of disclosures,
trains students to empathize and support survivors of sexual violence. At the end
of this training participants will be able to identify disclosures of sexual violence,

and self care resources for healing.
Through a group game, participants will learn the role of consent in a healthy and
happy sex life, how to assess and reduce risks of sexual behaviors, learn about birth
control and STI prevention, and get to ask anonymous sexual health questions. Free
safer sex supplies are also provided.
