Bully Prevention Workshops

The Office of Health Services offers an array of workshops to address issues related to bullying.

Workshop One: Bullying and Violence Prevention
Grade level: K-12
This workshop focuses on the serious consequences of bullying and how to help prevent further occurrences. Effective conflict-resolution strategies for children and teens are also discussed.

Workshop Two: Cyber Bullying, Personal Dating Safety, and Sexting
Grade level: 6-12
This workshop teaches students about forms of cyber bullying on cell phones, Facebook, and other social networking sites. This workshop describes types of cyber bullying, how to stop it, legal ramifications and steps to take to prevent it in the first place. During this workshop, students will understand the risks and serious consequences associated with sending sexual images via cell phones or computers. The last component of this workshop helps students learn about personal safety and dating safety and aims to help students understand types of harassment and what they can do to help stop it.

Workshop Three: Recognizing Bullying for Parents
Participants will learn how to identify different types and forms of bullying and identify behaviors commonly associated with boys and girls. Acquire knowledge about the nature and occurrence of bullying. Understand the implications of bullying and skills to quickly recognize warning signs. Parents will also learn what they can do to assist their child’s school in reducing the occurrences of bullying.

Workshop Four: Bullying Prevention for Educators
This workshop is designed to increase teacher’s awareness of bullying. The session emphasizes that bullying is a public health problem, tied to the larger issue of youth violence, chronic absenteeism, and diminished academic performance.

Staff Development includes:

  • Definition of bullying
  • Causes and effects of bullying
  • Avoiding the trap of becoming a teacher bully
  • Helping the victim and reclaiming the bully
  • Empowering the Bystander
  • Learning to create an atmosphere where there is zero tolerance for bullying

Climate Survey:
Our School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) in collaboration with our Bully Prevention Task Force created an anonymous questionnaire that was administered to students in an effort to probe into the social climate of the school that is typically visible only to them.

The results yielded vital information about:

  • The severity and frequency of bullying
  • Where and when bullying occurs
  • How students feel about reporting information about bullying to adults, and how they feel about other students who report such information
  • How wrong they and their peers think certain behaviors are
  • How comfortable they are interacting with kids from different racial/ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds
