Have you been a bystander in an escalating tension filled interaction? Have you wanted to intervene but not sure how? Frustrated?
In our current times, hateful harassment and assaults on racial groups, religious groups, immigrants, trans and other many other minority groups, are becoming increasingly publicized.
Active Bystander Training seeks to equip individuals with the tools to discern when to intervene, and how to interact appropriately to de-escalate tensions, and protect the targets of those interpersonal attacks.
This Quabbin Mediation
training is 2.5 hours and offers a chance to imagine scenarios and identify your own personal strategy for engaging. Based on the extensive research of Ervin Staub
, we will learn what has worked in past situations, and what keeps us from stepping in, so that we can become more pro-active in tough situations.
