The purpose of the study was to examine the effectiveness of a modified Green Dot bystander intervention training for resident assistants (RAs). Twenty-four RAs underwent a 2-h bystander intervention training. Participants completed a survey at pretest, posttest, and after 8 weeks. The results showed improvement in rape myth acceptance, beliefs in bystander intervention, and self-efficacy. However, no sustained changes were found in perceived barriers or intention to intervene. These findings suggest that current bystander intervention programs may need to be revised to focus more specifically on barriers and behavioral skills.
