Becoming an Active Bystander- Stopping Workplace Bullying
Mondays, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., December 7 and December 14, Campus Center Room 917
Have you seen behavior that hurts or undermines other staff? Do you want to help create a campus community where everyone is respected? Join us for a class that will help you stop and change hurtful behavior. Instead of being a passive bystander—wondering what to say or do—learn new skills for change and empowerment and become an active bystander. The third session will be devoted to practicing the active bystander skills learned in the first two sessions. Co-taught by Leslie Fraser and Amy Brodigan
