Defend Yourself and DC AVP: Bystander Intervention Training
DC Anti-Violence Project – *This training will last three hours, lunch will be provided, and tickets are only $10. (tickets are $10, however, no one will be turned away) Please let us know if you have any particular needs or concerns.* Are you concerned for those who face hate speech and violence? Unsure how to respond if you witness verbal or physical hate? We all have opportunities to interrupt potentially harmful situations. And we all have concerns that can prevent us from stepping up. We may fear for own safety, worry about being embarrassed, think it's not our business, be afraid of escalating the situation, or something else. Skills are the antidote to those concerns. In this trainings, you'll develop skills to assess a situation and choose a response. We teach creative strategies for responding to incidents of harassment and ways to de-escalate aggressive behavior. In our workshops, you'll engage n hands-on practice that builds on what you already know. We'll focus on: • A social justice framework for understanding the role of bystanders in interrupting oppression • Reasons to intervene when you see a problem, and reasons not to • Overcoming barriers to intervening • The 5 Steps of Bystander Intervention • 4 Tools for Intervening • And lots of practice! When you leave the training, you'll be more able to overcome the barriers to stepping up and have practical skills for doing so. We believe in building a culture of active bystanders through whose actions we reduce verbal and physical violence and oppression, while promoting community and respect. Get trained and equip yourself with ways you can play a role in stopping harassment and violence. - Defend Yourself
