Bystander intervention is a new and proven effective strategy to reduce incidents of bullying and other forms of violence and intimidation. The video explains bystander intervention and models how it works by showing dramatizations of bullying. The video stops at critical points and ask viewers: What would you do? Viewers learn to put their own safety first, and then learn how to best apply bystander intervention techniques: direct intervention, distraction, calling 911, and reaching out to trusted adults. In addition, real teens describe how they successfully used bystander intervention to stop or distract a bully.
