Being a Better Bystander
The Bystander Effect
Truth: Most problems happen in a group setting
There are opportunities to help everywhere.
The bystander effect doesn't just apply to helping an injured person on the street. It could be a fellow student that has drank too much, a friend that thinks about suicide, or a teammate getting hazed.
Decision Making
There are five steps to deciding to intervene in a situation.
Intervention Strategies
Use the S.E.E. Model:
Emergency Situations
Consider both DIRECT and INDIRECT ways to intervene.
DIRECT: You take responsibility as the primary helper.
INDIRECT: You request someone else be primary helper.
Non-Emergency Situations
Consider frequency, duration, and intensity
Know your limits as a helper.
Be sensitive and understanding
Identify red flags; Anticipate problems
Determine a goal, make a plan, practice what you want to say
The 5-point Formula for Friends
Other Factors that Affect Helping
Be the bystander you would want to have in a difficult situation.
Truth: You will likely be in a situation in which you can help in the near future.
Check out the video below to get an idea of what the Bystander Effect is.
Watch the video below to see the many opportunities to intervene in a potential sexual assault.
Notice the event.
Interpret the event as a problem.
Assume personal responsibility
Know how to help.
Implement the help.
Perspective taking:
Obedience to Authority/Perceived Authority:
What would you want someone to do for you?
Are orders from an authority figure affecting the situation?
Short and long examples of obedience to authority
Don't Eat
SAFE Responding
EARLY Intervention
Whatever your response, do the following:
Calm the person
Gather information
Look at options
Provide support
Do NOT become enmeshed
Look for the best exit strategy for all involved
Be clear and direct with requests
Consider the level of risk in choosing action
Intervene early -- before problems escalate
Call 9-1-1 if it is not safe or prudent to help
Consider both DIRECT and INDIRECT ways to intervene.
DIRECT: You speak with the person directly.
INDIRECT: You speak with a person you feel could be helpful or give guidance.
Interrupt situations you think might be problematic
Set boundaries
Conduct conversations in a safe environment
I Care: Start and end the conversation by letting them know you care about them.
I See: Report actual events. State facts not opinions.
I Feel: Tell the person your own feelings using "I statements".
I Want: Tell the person what you want to see happen.
I Will: State what you will and will not do.
It takes courage and leadership to stand away from the crowd, but you could make a huge difference in another person's life.
