An Introduction to Bystander Intervention

29 February 2024

Time: 8:00 AM

Summary

Have you ever witnessed a situation and been left with the thought “I wish I had said or done something”?

In the course of their workdays, physiotherapists may observe or experience sexual harassment (referred to as sexual misconduct if done by a health professional towards a patient).

Sexual harassment can be insidious and unsettling. In this presentation, the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton provides a primer on creating spaces free of sexual harassment and addressing dynamics that can lead to several types of harm.

Participants will learn strategies for intervening in the moment, as well as a framework through which to contribute to more enduring initiatives.

The Public Education Team at the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) works year-round to provide comprehensive, trauma-informed anti-sexual violence education while annually speaking to over 15,000 unique participants. The team has experience connecting with diverse audiences from youth in schools and community programs to a wide range of professionals and community organizations throughout Edmonton and beyond. All educators have extensive backgrounds in providing anti-sexual violence education, engaging the community to eradicate sexual violence, and supporting people who've been impacted by this form of abuse.
