Bystander intervention and diffusion of responsibility are two terms that are explained in depth in this documentary. Studies have shown that when there are a greater amount of witnesses to an emergency the less likely people will offer to help. We explore the historical background, the psychological experiments, and the five-step helping process for why this happens. Also, learn how to react if you are in an emergency situation, whether or not you are the victim or bystander.
