Facilitating bystander workshops all across the country, we have been met with questions consistently about how bystander action really impacts the person experiencing the violence. Do bystanders make it worse? What message is the victim getting when bystanders intervene? What message are they getting when bystanders do nothing? What if I get it wrong?

These are important questions, and as effective bystanders, the answers can help us to overcome some significant challenges.

Cathy comes from a the perspective of a survivor, and thanks to her work, people in many spaces (including the finance sector) have a better victim/survivor-focused understanding in their practice. Cathy advocates long and hard for a better understanding of the lived experience of people who have suffered violence and abuse.

We’re so pleased to bring this webinar to you, as part of our free DFV Prevention Month series.
