A new blog post by Susan Krauss Whitbourne, psychological and brain sciences, examines the effectiveness of active bystander programs, such as the one implemented by UMass Amherst, to prevent sexual assault on college campuses. Whitbourne writes, “These bystander education programs will ultimately pay off as they spread the word about the need to avoid the unfortunate diffusion of responsibility that we all fall prey to, especially when in a large group,” but she also points to new research that shows alcohol use and other factors greatly decrease the tendency of men to be active bystanders.
