USA - The Behind the Scenes Mental Health Initiative will present a free webinar Bystander Intervention in the Entertainment Workplace once a quarter over the next year.
These webinars follow on the success of last spring’s trainings, with previous attendees commenting, “This is the type of training that will help us transform both our working and personal lives for the better,” “This workshop was so helpful in concisely identifying issues and strategies to deal with them. I feel empowered to address awkward situations in my future,” “This training is engaging, good for participation and interaction, and is full of great examples and a variety of methods to use to help others who may need help,” and “The best part of the Bystander Intervention training for me was the many different ways of approaching a situation which I'd never thought of. We all have our own set of mechanisms, but this helped me think outside of my box.”
Behind the Scenes is partnering with Right To Be, a social justice organisation that specialises in education around bullying and harassment, to present this free quarterly webinar on 18 October 2022 and 30 January, 30 April and 17 July 2023. Principal Right To Be trainer, Dax Valdes, an experienced entertainment industry professional, will lead these interactive sessions that ensure attendee anonymity.
The webinars are free but advance registration is required in order to receive the zoom login. Please visit to select a registration link for the date of your choice.
BTS’ 2019 survey strongly indicated that bullying, harassment and intimidation is a common workplace stressor throughout all sectors of the entertainment industry. These behaviours create a physically and psychologically unsafe workplace for everyone. This training will teach you how to safely intervene and help to make a difference.
Right To Be’s goal is to reduce instances of workplace disrespect and harassment by giving individuals the tools they need to disrupt those perpetrating it. You will learn the 5Ds of bystander intervention methodology - distract, delegate, document, delay, and direct. 98% of attendees leave these trainings committed to intervening if they witness disrespect or harassment at work.
This webinar is offered as part of an ongoing Stop Bullying campaign launched by the Mental Health Initiative in 2021.
