Action Zone! NYU (formerly known as Step Up! NYU) is a bystander intervention training for risk reduction. 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 with interactivity and facilitated practice using Augusto Boal’s Forum Theatre model. By participating in the Action Zone! you can be a part of reducing risk and shifting cultural norms at NYU!
