Strategies for Effective Bystander Intervention

Brought to you by the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights

This interactive, virtual training explores the factors that influence bystander intervention and strategies for intervening effectively in response to bias and discrimination. Participants will investigate the cognitive and psychological processes that inhibit and encourage bystander intervention. Then, using case studies and interactive media, participants will be introduced to and practice research-based strategies for  responding to explicit bias, “everyday” or casual forms of bias, and bias expressed in digital environments.
