Bullying Prevention Training

Post

Overview

Now more than ever, it’s crucial for us to build safe communities to protect our children. Current research indicates over 30% of American students have been involved in bullying incidences, either in the role of bully or victim. The level and intensity of violence has also increased both in-person and online.   

Learn how to identify, understand and prevent bullying behaviors among children through this program. School personnel, as well as individuals who work with teens and at risk youth populations, will gain a broader understanding of bullying dynamics while also learning intervention techniques to help reduce future bullying behaviors and change the culture of a school.
