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 17, 2015 from 11am to 1pm in Pless Hall, 1st Floor Lounge. Lunch will be served.
Action Zone! NYU (formerly known as Step Up! 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. Lunch will be provided.
