Title of Talk:   Does alcohol intoxication impact the intentions and behaviors of bystanders to sexual violence?

Description of Talk:
Bystanders can play a key role in preventing sexual violence. Although alcohol is prevalent in instances of sexual violence among college students, little research has explored the extent to which bystander intervention is impaired by alcohol consumption. Data from four studies exploring the relationship between alcohol use and bystander intentions and behaviors were inconsistent, suggesting that the impact of alcohol on bystanders is weak and may depend on other factors.
