Request a Green Dot Bystander Intervention Training or Overview
Green Dot Overview
An overview speech is 90-minutes long for faculty/staff/administrative audiences, and 60-90 minutes for student audiences. The Overview may be delivered via Zoom or in-person by a trained facilitator. The Overview is intended to provide basic knowledge and strategies for how to safely & effectively intervene when witnessing an act of power-based personal violence. Participants will identify warning signs of sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking; become more self-aware of barriers that prevent them from taking action; explore intervention strategies that are realistic for them in different contexts; identify pro-social behaviors to use in every day practice that establish norms that are intolerant of violence.
Green Dot Training
The Training is 3.5-hour presentation delivered in person by trained facilitators. The Training is designed to build a thorough understanding of the national Green Dot bystander intervention strategy, and equip participants with an advanced skillset to be responsibly reactive and proactive in sustaining norms on our campus that are intolerant of violence. Participants will connect more consciously to their opinions regarding the role and responsibility of the bystander; recognize behaviors associated with sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking; recognize barriers that may prevent them from intervening; develop realistic intervention strategies given their unique set of barriers; understand the basic elements of culture change and engage others in this change through their social networks/spheres of influence.

Virtual Learning Environment: Only Overviews are available in this format and we limit these to 50 people. If you have a larger group, please contact us to discuss possible adaptation plans. Due to the interactive features we use through Zoom, and to be mindful of the privacy of all participants when discussing sensitive topics, we require that each participant individually login through their own Zoom account to join the session. We treat these requests as individual meetings, not as webinars.
In-Person Learning Environment: Overviews and full Trainings are available in this format. We do not have an audience limit for Overviews, but Trainings should have between 10-40 participants. If you have a larger group for a Training request please contact us to discuss possible adaptation plans.
