Session 5 Social Norms and Bystander Intervention

We will be learning and working together as a group in this programme.


Some of the material we will be discussing will be sensitive and some of us will have had personal experience of the things we discuss.


We will all be respectful of personal emotions as we learn.


Please be aware that we will be talking about sensitive issues and issues that might have affected you or people you care about.


If you feel uncomfortable or upset it is fine to leave the space.

Facilitators will understand and are trained to help you.
