 Step UP! Initial Training – Tier 1

This award winning (NSAPA GOLD 2010), evidence based foundational Step UP! training educates participants on the concepts of bystander intervention. Many times campus leaders become aware of the extent of problems only after a crisis occurs and educational programs come ‘after the fact’.  Based on proven research and theories, Step UP! takes a comprehensive, proactive, and prevention based approach and examines the underlying human, social and environmental influences that cause people to be inactive bystanders, while providing strategies and techniques for effective intervention.  This training will give you the framework for implementing a successful bystander intervention program on your campus or with your organization. Teaching people about the determinants of prosocial behavior makes us more aware of why we sometimes don’t help and, as a result, we are more likely to help in the future. 

Beyond the Basics – Tier 2

In collaboration with The Waters Center for Systems Thinking, BEYOND THE BASICS builds on many concepts in Tier 1 and enhances the foundational training by incorporating systems thinking habits, tools and techniques, taking Step UP! and bystander intervention to a new level. Systems thinking is a holistic approach that looks at the big picture and the complex environments we navigate and allows us to expand intervention efforts, improve culture and build community. Until and unless we understand where and how various parts of the system intersect and interrelate, singular acts of intervention will continue to make a difference, but ultimately be insufficient for the most impactful change. Learn how to make your programs better and systems stronger. For more information, please contact us.
