At this workshop, Katie O’Brien, from Calgary Sexual Health will explore and discuss the bystander effect and some common barriers to intervention. You will increase your knowledge and identify how media and society perpetuate harmful messages about consent, relationships, and sexual violence. You will learn practical tools to prepare you to recognize when and how you can be an ACTIVE bystander.
Katie is the Project Coordinator for #CalgaryGetsConsent with Calgary Sexual Health.
