    #66. Intervening

    This Conversation Will Help You…


    1. Identify a problematic situation
    2. Name different ways to safely intervene
    3. Commitment to intervene, in whatever way feels safe to them – directly, or telling someone, etc.


    Think About This First

    • This conversation can help increase a commitment to intervening in ways that feel safe and useful.


    Having the Conversation


    Start Here:

    If you were walking down the hallway or down the street and someone was being bullied or harassed, how would you know?

    What are some things that would tell you?

    What would you see, what would you hear?



    What would this look like if it was happening in a group of people you were with?

    When something like this happens within a group of people, are there ways that people could say something or stop what was happening?

    What are ways you’ve seen people do this?

    Are there ways that work better than others?


    Keep Talking:

    If someone was harassing someone else in your group, what are some ways you could step in that would feel safe?

    Does it depend on the situation?

    What kinds of things would you say something and in what kinds of situations would you want to tell someone what’s happening?

    What are ways to tell someone that something is going on without feeling like a snitch or that you’re telling on someone?
