More than ready: bystander action to prevent violence against women

25 May 2012
Description

This research provides an evidence base to develop further programs that encourage pro-social bystander action to address the determinants of violence against women.

The VicHealth Bystander Research Project is the first of its kind in Australia. To date, the project has included an evidence review to identify research gaps in the field, followed by a state-wide survey to examine readiness for bystander action in the Victorian community.

The findings provide a sound evidence base to develop further programs that encourage pro-social bystander action to address the determinants of violence against women. The findings also point to future directions in research related to bystanders and health promotion.

The research outcomes are presented in four papers:

  • A summary, presenting the research highlights.
  • The full research report.
  • A technical report, covering the methodology and outcomes of the research.
  • A review, examining the theories relating to bystander behaviour and examines a range of programs that are designed to increase prosocial bystander action.
