ICARE—Bystander Intervention Training

Sponsored by the Women's Resources Center

Request form

ICARE is a 90-minute bystander intervention workshop offered to established groups and organizations on campus. In this highly interactive workshop, students dialogue with peers in their organization about consent and sexually disrespectful behavior, understand what helps people intervene in sexually disrespectful situations, set a group norm in which sexually disrespectful behavior is recognized as a problem and active bystander behavior is promoted, and learn a variety of intervention skills. The workshop is also highly customizable and is built specifically for group members to examine their values and how they can work together to end sexual violence.

If your group or organization would like to request an ICARE workshop, fill out the request form. The ICARE coordinator will be in contact to set up a workshop. Questions? Contact Molly McLay, Assistant Director, Women's Resources Center:
