|Let’s talk about Standing up, Speaking Up, and Bearing Witness. Rev. Dr. Debbie Clark, Open Spirit|
We’ve all been there. You find yourself in a situation where you know you are witnessing harm being done to another person and you want to intervene. But how? What do you say? How do you go from being a passive onlooker to an active bystander?
This Lunch and Learn will introduce Training Active Bystanders which has been brought to MetroWest through a collaboration between Open Spirit and Jewish Family Services.
Rev. Dr. Debbie Clark and a TAB trainer will give an overview of the training developed by Quabbin Mediation which draws upon research and the wisdom of the gathered participants to identify barriers to active bystandership and develop ways to overcome them. You will leave this Lunch and Learn with a better understanding and tools to move from silence to action in 2022.
