Brief Program Description

This session is derived from the perceptions of the stakeholders facing the challenges of bullying-bystanding. As adults, we often discuss the problem and solutions amongst ourselves, but we forget to include the important people in the discussion, who are the actual bystanders. What are they really saying when the cameras are off? This session will share the reasons students say bystanding continues. Information from this session may help school development teams to reassess the way in which they are addressing this strategy.

Summary

People attending this session will be encouraged to not just hear the perceptions of students, but walk in the shoes of the bystanders. It is very easy for adults to tell them how to address bullying, but are school development teams establishing environments conducive to "don't be a bystander strategy".
