Brief Program Description

Bullying is portrayed as an epidemic in schools. The issue, however, is identifying how many of these incidents constitute actually bullying vs. simply conflict or poor social skills. At the end of this session, participants will develop a school-wide plan for identifying conflict, identifying instances of bullying, and identifying higher order social emotional skills to prevent "conflict" from becoming bullying. Emphasis is placed on the prediction and prevention of conflict rather than the traditional reaction approach to bullying.
