I Got Your Back: A Bystander Intervention
Transcript of I Got Your Back: A Bystander Intervention
Students will be able to identify at least one strategy to effectively intervene as an active bystander.
Students will be able to list at least one resource in their community and CSUSB to help victims of sexual assault.
What's the issue?
1 in 5 women and 1 in 16 men are sexually assaulted in college.
8 in 10 victims knew their attacker (friend, significant other, etc.)
Rape results in about 32,000 pregnancies each year.
It is estimated that between 2%-7% of sexual assault reports are false
A Bystander Intervention
Who is a bystander?
A bystander is someone who is present and thus potentially in position to discourage, prevent, or interrupt an incident. They are not directly involved but have the choice to intervene, speak up, or do something about it.
What is bystander intervention?
The act of feeling empowered and equipped with the knowledge and skills to effectively assist in the prevention of sexual violence.
Intervening does not have to jeopardize the safety of the bystander. They can intervene in a safe and positive way that they can act to prevent or intervene when there is a risk for sexual violence.
Stepping in before it happens, or during an incident, and speaking out against ideas and behaviors that support sexual violence.
Consent is a mutual verbal, physical, and emotional agreement that happens without manipulation, threats, or head games.
Help didn't arrive on time
Rape and sexual assault survivors often suffer
from a wide range of physical and mental health problems that can follow them for life. Including:
Post-traumatic stress disorder
More likely than non-victims to attempt or consider suicide.
Why doesn't anyone help?
Bystander Intervention Effect
Diffusion of responsibility - Everyone assumes someone else will intervene.
Pluralist Ignorance - "No one else seems to be bothered by what is going on, so it must not really be a problem"
Fear of retaliation
Fear of embarrassment
