Action Zone Training – Fri. April 17, 2015 11a-1pm

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.

The Threesis Academic Challenge is an academic competition for GSAS master’s students. Students present the work of their thesis or final project (e.g. creative project, science experiment or research paper) in three minutes or less to a panel of judges in accessible language a non-expert can understand. Competitors are judged on how well they grasp the subject of their thesis, their ability to discuss the topic to non-experts, and presentation skills. Students compete for a grand prize of $1,000 and other prizes while learning to organize ideas and speak about them persuasively in a fun, academic atmosphere.

GSAS will award prizes totaling $3,000 and departments participating in the GSAS Threesis Incentive Program will award $300 to finalists from participating departments and programs. By attending the event you will have a chance to vote for the 2015 GSAS Threesis Audience Choice Winner.

Wine and cheese reception to follow the program.
