This FREE 1.5-hour, interactive training will teach you Hollaback!’s 5D’s of bystander intervention methodology. We’ll start by talking about the types of disrespect — from microaggressions to violence — that people with marginalized identities face and the history of identity-based violence. You’ll also learn what to look for and the positive impact that bystander intervention has on individuals and communities. We’ll talk through five strategies for intervention: distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct; and how to prioritize your own safety while intervening. We’ll have time at the end for practice, and you’ll leave feeling more confident intervening the next time you see identity-based harassment online or in person.
Thanks to a Four Freedoms Fund grant, Houston Coalition Against Hate, OCA-Greater Houston, and Hollaback! will present this training seven times to the public, starting in March 2021 and continuing monthly through the summer.
This workshop will present information, activities, and examples from several interconnected areas that should be useful to mediation trainers and practitioners.
The workshop will also focus on understanding and correcting workplace incivility, including bullying, harassment, and other negative behaviors.
The techniques include identifying and correcting bullying and other negative behaviors, preventing burnout in natural trust leaders, behavioral transition techniques for positive growth, and restorative practices in alternative dispute resolution. The workshop begins with the recognition that parties involved in conflict are in distress due to the fact that “we are all recovering from something.”
