Bystander intervention on college campuses


In July 2011, PreventConnect Reading Club hosted two lively discussions on “Evaluation of Green Dot: Active Bystander Intervention on College Campuses.” Participants exchanged stories of how Green Dot works on their campus and the future of bystander interventions on campuses and in the community. Besides great ideas and suggestions on how to approach bystander intervention, participants also recommended literature that addresses opinion leaders to promote behavior change and sexual violence prevention efforts with youth in Canada:

Identifying Opinion Leaders to Promote Behavior Change by Thomas W. Valente and Patchareeya Pumpuang

Building Prevention: Sexual Violence, Youth and Drinking
