To intervene or not to intervene: A realistic environment measuring actual bystander behaviour regarding sexual assault

Investigating third-party helping behaviour (bystander intervention) as a method of reducing sexual assault prevalence rates on university campuses has increased in recent years. To understand what motivates helping behaviour, research has relied on self-report data where people can report what they intend to do if they were to witness a sexual assault. This talk will highlight the limitations associated with self-report data and will focus on how technology can be used to create an immersive environment to measure actual helping behaviour, through the use of actors depicting signs leading up to a sexual assault, and deception.
