HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The following is a news release from The University of Southern Mississippi

The Shafer Center for Crisis Intervention and The University of Southern Mississippi will host a Green Dot bystander intervention training session Tuesday, June 30 from 1-5 p.m. in room 102 of the Trent Lott Center on the Hattiesburg campus. Training will be facilitated by staff from the Shafer Center.

The training teaches skills and techniques on how to safely and effectively intervene in situations where violence is either a possibility or a reality. "Intervention" takes many forms, from something as simple as placing a violence prevention poster to talking with a student, friend or co-worker if you suspect physical abuse, to posting articles on your Facebook page about sexual assault prevention or intervening in a situation headed toward violence.

For more information, including on registration for the training, contact Rebecca Malley at 601.266.6804 or e-mail rebecca.malley@usm.edu  or visit the Green Dot website:www.livethegreendot.org.
