Bystander Intervention Workshop to Prevent Gender Violence

Date: Monday 20 November 2017       Time: 10am to 3pm
Location: Victorian Council of Churches | Causeway House, Level 4 / 306 Little Collins Street, Melbourne (Chellew Room)

Facilitator: Dr Ree Bodde | Program Director Think Prevent

Workshop Goals:

  • Raise awareness of participants about the level of violence against women in our culture
  • Challenge thinking by countering mainstream messages about gender, sex and violence
  • Open dialogue by creating a safe environment for men and women to share their opinions and experiences about these issues
  • Inspire leadership by empowering participants with concrete options to safely confront and interrupt abusive situations

Think Prevent workshops are facilitated discussions, not lectures. They are highly interactive. Awareness raising is utilised to develop concrete options for participants to employ during a range of work or social situations – ranging from inappropriate comments to physical abuse. Additionally, workshops open dialogue regarding participant leadership around issues such as: the drivers of gender violence as it relates to unhealthy behaviour, sexual objectification of women, sexual harassment, battering and sexual assault.
