This interactive, virtual training explores the factors that inhibit and encourage bystander intervention, especially in situations involving bias, harassment and discrimination. Participants will investigate the cognitive and psychological processes that influence whether and how people get involved, and delve into strategies for intervening to support targets of bias and in response to other problematic behavior. Participants will also learn about the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination and consider the importance of bystander intervention within the context of civil rights law.
NOTE: DCR does not allow participants to join a training if they arrive more than 30 minutes after the start time.
