Bystanders are individuals who witness emergencies, criminal events or situations where others may be hurt and have the opportunity to provide assistance, do nothing, or contribute to the negative behavior. Pro-social bystanders are individuals whose behaviors intervene in ways that impact the outcome positively. Through our Bystander Intervention Training, individuals learn practical techniques to successfully intervene when they see others in danger.
