Is bullying a part of our culture and therefore an expected part of our educational system? Is it possible to make the school environment a place without fear? Will our classrooms ever be safe places without concern of being teased and picked on?
This class will help educators develop proactive strategies to minimize and prevent bullying and teasing behaviors. We will discuss victims, rescuers, bystanders, and bullies and how they are intertwined in life. Empowering victims, strategies for bystanders, alternative approaches for rescuers, and re-direction in behaviors for bullies will be shared with all participants.
Research based approaches will be presented to help each person feel more confident and qualified at intervening during the bullying cycle of behavior. We will focus on facilitating the change of attitude in each studentʼs life. Name calling, tattling, threats, and physical attacks will all be addressed. Checklists and resources will be shared to support each person.
This course will benefit all educators, K-12.
