Step UP! Bystander Intervention
Have you ever been concerned about a situation and wanted to help...but didn't? You are not alone!
It is a common experience for people to witness something and want to help but not take action. Many problematic behaviors on college campuses involve witnesses, or bystanders. Why don't these bystanders help? What gets in the way?
This situation is more common than you might think, and is know as the bystander effect. Once one person starts to help, other people are more likely to come on board as helpers.
