Bullying Prevention – Raising Strong Kids by Responding to Hurtful and Harmful Behavior

Bullying Prevention: Raising Strong Kids by Responding to Hurtful & Harmful BehaviorBullying Prevention: Raising Strong Kids by Responding to Hurtful & Harmful Behavior is a 3-hour video-based CE course presented by Amy Burzinski, LISW. This video course starts with a thoughtful definition of “bullying” and goes on to illustrate the functional roles of the three participant groups: the targeted individuals, the bullies, and the bystanders.

The speaker discusses the concepts of resiliency, empathy, and growth/fixed mindsets, and considers the pros and cons of alternative responses to harmful behavior.

Included also are an examination of the utility of zero tolerance policies and a variety of adult responses when becoming aware of bullying behavior. The speaker utilizes multiple examples and scenarios to propose strategies and techniques intended to offer connection, support and reframing to targeted individuals, motivation to change in the form of progressive, escalating consequences to bullies, and multiple intervention options to bystanders.

Further segments discuss ways in which schools can create safe, pro-social climates.
