Produced by the Skorton Center for Health Initiatives, a unit within Cornell Health at Cornell University, in collaboration with the Cornell Interactive Theater Ensemble, Intervene uses brief scenarios to demonstrate ways in which student bystanders can successfully intervene in problematic situations. Seven different situations are addressed, including sexual assault, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence (emotional abuse), hazing, an alcohol emergency, emotional distress, and bias. The video is intended to be used with students who already have some exposure to the college social environment, and is not intended to be used during new student orientation. A facilitator discussion guide and the results of a randomized control trial evaluation are also provided on the program web site.
The materials are informational and educational in nature, and are intended to be used as developed and prepared by the Skorton Center for Health Initiatives. The video content is not to be modified, altered, or revised in any way. Cornell University makes no representation or warranty express or implied regarding any particular outcome from the use of the materials. Use is permitted with attribution to developers.
