This study evaluated preliminary efficacy of the PRSM Bystander Intervention Training, a two-hour, peer-facilitated, interactive, group-based program that educates students about bystander intervention, and obtaining consent for sexual activity. A unique strength, PRSM integrates information on risky alcohol use included in evidence-based interventions for heavy drinking in college students. Surveys are distributed before and after the training to evaluate participants’ endorsements of rape myths, willingness, ability and readiness to intervene, and attitudes on alcohol. Findings provide preliminary support for the efficacy of the program. Research on the efficacy of PRSM is ongoing, and three-month follow-up data is currently being analyzed.
