Action Zone! NYU is a bystander intervention training for risk reduction. Topic areas include, but are not limited to:

  • eating disorders
  • unhealthy relationships
  • substance use
  • mental health

Studies show that most people want to help, but very few actually do. We explore this phenomenon as well as when to intervene and when not to; safe, early, and effective intervention; and pro-social behavior theory with interactivity and facilitated practice using Augusto Boal’s Forum Theatre model. By participating in the Action Zone! you can be a part of reducing risk and shifting cultural norms at NYU!
