Bystander Behavior

  • What Is Bystander Behavior?
    Bystander Behavior is a social science model that predicts that most people are unlikely to help others in certain situations. A bystander is anyone who observes an emergency or a situation that looks like someone could use some help. They must then decide if they are comfortable stepping in and offering assistance. More information on Bystander Behavior.
