What’s an Active Bystander?
A bystander is a witness—someone who sees a harmful situation and has a choice to make: Do I do something? If so, what do I do?
Active Bystander Trainings allow participants to recognize when they are bystanders, how to analyze the situations in which they find themselves, and evaluate the consequences for everyone involved. It teaches how bystanders can interrupt harm doing and generate positive actions by others. We emphasize that 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. (Quabbin Mediation)
