Questions to ask before taking action:
Am I concerned about a situation becoming a potential problem?
Do I recognize someone who may need help?
Do I see others and myself as part of the solution?
Do I have a responsibility to act?
If the roles were reversed would I want or need someone to intervene?
How can I keep myself and others safe if I intervene?
- What are my available options? Options may include, but are not limited to:
- creating a distraction,
- interrupting a situation,
- removing others and myself from the situation,
- checking in to make sure friends and any vulnerable individuals make it home safely, and
- speaking out against social norms that support violence.
Are there others I can call for help, including 911 and the Collin College Police Department?
What are the benefits and costs of taking action?
- Educate yourself and others about gender inequality, prohibited conduct, the causes of violence, healthy relationships, and consent to sexual activity.
- Challenge the myths surrounding violence and prohibited conduct. Understand how your attitudes and actions may perpetuate these myths, and work toward changing them.
- Don't make excuses for other people's inappropriate behavior.
- Don't blame the victim.
- Gently offer support if you suspect someone close to you has been a victim of violence.
