Communities in Conflict: Why teens stand by instead of standing up?
Prevention Peer Network

Webinar Creative Interventions

This webinar is part of the Partnership’s Prevention Peer Network series, where local programs present on their prevention strategies and lessons learned. This webinar reflects on the Bystander Intervention workshops provided to youth within San Diego’s Juvenile Court & Community Schools, emphasizing the reasons why teens impacted by violence often choose not to intervene when they witness conflict. For many teens, intervening is not and has not been an option. During this interactive webinar, we share the scenarios used and the consequences of intervening based on youth responses, as well as discuss alternative ways in which facilitators can encourage teens to become active bystanders or an upstander. Presented by Marcella Maggio, Prevention Coordinator Center for Community Solutions.
