Transcript of BeVocal Campus Facilitator Training

What is Bystander Intervention?
Bystander intervention is recognizing a potentially harmful situation or interaction and choosing to respond in a way that could positively influence the outcome.
What are steps to intervention?
1) Recognize Potential Harm
2) Choose to Respond
3) Take Action
What are barriers to intervention?
• “I’m sure someone else will do something, so I don’t need to.”

• “I’m not responsible, it's someone else’s problem.”

• “No-one else thinks this is a problem so it’s not a big deal.”

• “I’m afraid of what will happen to me if I do anything.”

• “I’ll be embarrassed if I do anything.”

Take Action!
Direct Action:
An overt or active approach to intervening that requires direct articulation or expression of concern with the situation
BeVocal: The Bystander Intervention Initiative
Campus Facilitator Training

works with partners across campus to focus on the following issues:
• Concerning behavior assessment • Suicide prevention
• Academic integrity • Hazing
• High-risk drinking • Harassment*
• Interpersonal violence • Hate speech*
• Mental health concerns • Bias incidents*

*These behaviors may be expressions of racism, ableism, transphobia, homophobia, sexism and other forms of systemic oppression.
Indirect Action:
Also known as a ‘detour’ approach involving less visible forms of intervening
• Ask questions/get clarity
• Create a distraction
• Talk/address directly

• Get other people involved
• Call 911 or UTPD non-emergency number (512) 471-4441
• Report to Behavior Concerns Advice Line (BCAL)
• Report to Campus Climate Response Team (CCRT)
• Follow up, check in and offer resources related to the issue to the person being impacted

Motivations to intervention?
• “I know it’s wrong and others are probably thinking the same thing.”

• “I care about the person being impacted.”

• “I’m afraid of what will happen if I don’t do anything.”

• “I’ll feel better knowing I did something.”

• “I would want someone to help me if I was in that situation.”
Think of a time when you saw or heard of
something that seemed problematic or
harmful whether or not you did something.
