Preventing Bullying: Fostering Positive Relationships & Healthy Environments
July 18, 2014 @ 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Come to this 4-hour interactive training to discuss strategies and share best practices for identifying and addressing bullying in an asset-based, restorative way at your school or program.
According to www.stopbullying.gov: Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
This issue is an important one to address in schools and programs with young people because of the immediate problem (e.g. bullying) but also because of the messaging that surrounds it.¬†Addressing bullying takes a multi-layered effort, based on an approach that includes both adults and young people working together to bring about long-lasting, positive change to our schools, programs and ultimately, our communities.
