Bystander Intervention Training
This training will build on the work of January’s introductory session.
Location: First Congregational Church of Milton, 495 Canton Avenue, Milton. Please park and enter in the back of the church.
Courageous Conversations and True Story Theater present a comprehensive Active Bystander Training free of cost to interested participants in the greater Boston area. The 3 hour workshop will be tailored specifically to the work of Courageous Conversations and the needs of our community. This training will focus on:
- BIAS/OBLIVIOUSNESS: When your own ignorance may cause unintentional harm to others (e.g. “micro-agressions” and hidden bias) + tips on welcoming to feedback when you’s caused harm and skills for being a good ally.
True Story Theater workshops include Playback Theatre, a form of improvised story-telling theater used around the world to build trust and connection among people across differences. Playback creates a safe container for participants to express strong feelings, and brings the issues alive as the actors dramatize different scenarios and invite those from the audience who wish to try out different possible interventions. Participants practice new skills in pairs and small groups.
