A heartbreaking example of the Bystander Effect was a brutal sexual assault on a 15-year-old girl who was gang-raped in Richmond, California, while over 20 other teens and adults nearby did nothing to get help. To break through the fog of conflicting thoughts and feelings that can cause bystanders to become frozen or even join in an assault, we have our teen and adult students practice these skills and actions to overcome the bystander effect to get help.
