Faculty members in the Department of Psychology have published books this year that together exemplify the wide range of subject-matter that UNH psychologists cover in their research, from the history of psychology to brain and cognition to social psychology.
Toward the Next Generation of Bystander Prevention of Sexual and Relationship Violence: Action Coils to Engage Communities
by Victoria L. Banyard
Springer Briefs in Criminology
This brief integrates and synthesizes an array of research about who helps others and under what conditions and discusses the implications of this research for a bystander intervention focused prevention agenda to reduce sexual and relationship violence in schools and communities. It combines an examination of bystander helping behavior in the specific context of sexual and relationship violence with social psychological research on bystander behavior outside that context in order to inform prevention efforts. This brief is designed for researchers, practitioners, and students concerned about violence prevention and who are interesting in bystander intervention as a promising prevention strategy. Connections between research and practice are the foundation of this brief.
