Best Practices in Bullying Prevention


Following definitions of bullying and conflict, participants will learn specific techniques and strategies that will help them develop a better understanding of offline and online bullying behavior. They will review research-based best practices and learn practical guidelines for implementing a whole-school approach to preventing peer abuse. Participants will also discuss myths about bullying, ways to acknowledge positive behavior, and to empower bystanders to help targets of bullying. The presentation will give participants practical ways to ensure that their schools have peaceful learning environments where positive and respectful behaviors are practiced in order for all students to achieve academic success as well as personal and interpersonal success.
