Bystander Intervention


Bystanders play an important part in stopping harassment and bullying in both the workplace and social environments. The helpless feeling we experience when we witness or are the recipient of harassing behavior is real, and we have many unhealthy defenses we use to “get out” of the situation.


The ability to de-escalate problem situations is like a muscle that needs exercising. Through real-life role-play, we will practice hearing others objectively, asserting ourselves effectively, decreasing the potential for violence, and controlling the situation so you and others are not harmed.  

In this interactive lecture, André Salvage will discuss and demonstrate these awarenesses and skills:

    • Recognizing your biases and affinities
    • Using and trusting your intuition
    • How to advocate for others
    • Intervention techniques 
    • Effective assertiveness
    • Creating a safe place for people who are being harassed or bullied


Participants will learn practical action steps to take when witnessing harassment and bullying.

This training can be presented as a 1-2 hour lecture or a half-day workshop tailored to fit your specific needs. Contact us at for more information or to schedule a workshop.
