Sign up for Action Zone: Bystander Intervention Leadership Training today!
NYU Steinhardt’s Office of Counseling & Student Services is working in partnership with NYU’s Health Promotion Office to offer Action Zone! on Friday, April 29, 2016 from 10-11:30am in Kimball Hall, 246 Greene Street, 1st Floor. Breakfast will be served.
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
- bias language
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!
This opportunity is open to NYU Steinhardt students, faculty, and staff. Breakfast will be provided.
