Action Zone

Action Zone is a bystander intervention training for risk reduction, adapted from the University of Arizona’s Step Up! program. Topic areas include, but are not limited to:

  • eating disorders
  • unhealthy relationships
  • substance use
  • mental health
  • bias language

Studies show that most people want to help, but very few actually do. We explore this phenomenon as well as when to intervene and when not to; safe, early, and effective intervention; and pro-social behavior theory. This interactive training will prepare participants to be helpers in the NYU community.
