Bystander Trainings: Bystander trainings include video and role-play exercises and other activities which allow participants to practice proactive intervention skills. The training is split into four modules: Introduction to Green Dot; Recognizing Red Dots; Identifying Self-Defining Moments and Overcoming Obstacles; and Proactive and Reactive Green Dots.
Consent is positive cooperation involving an act of free will, absent of coercion, intimidation, force, or the threat of force. A person cannot give effective consent if he/she is unable to appreciate the nature of the sexual act, as with a person who has a disability that would impair understanding of the act or if a person is impaired by the influence of drugs or alcohol..
Consent to one thing does not imply another. If limits are made clear and consent is not given, pressuring someone into changing their mind is not consent. If you are unwilling to accept a "no", then "yes" has no meaning.
It is active, not passive. Silence and passivity do not equal consent.
Giving in because of fear is NOT consent. Giving in or going along with someone to gain approval or to avoid being hurt is NOT consent.
