dc.description Research Brief en_US
dc.description.abstract Research on the causes of sexual violence and evaluation of prevention efforts indicates that bystanders (also referred to as witnesses, defenders, or upstanders) are a key piece of prevention work....The biggest and most consistent impacts of bystander training are on attitudes, including confidence as a bystander, intent to take action, and perceived benefits of action.17 Students have also shown decreases in belief in rape myths and increases in knowledge.18 Published results exist for MVP, Bringing in the Bystander, One in Four, Coaching Boys to Men19 (for high school students), and Green Dot, though studies vary quite a bit in the methods used.20 Berkowitz’s Men’s Project has some data to suggest that it may reduce perpetration of sexual assault among some participants in the program and change men’s norms about coercion in relationships.21 The Coaching Boys to Men program and Bringing in the Bystander have both shown higher self-reported bystander behaviors among participants in these programs.
