Workshop description:

Bullying is widespread and of great concern to many of us – including young people, families, educators, youth workers and other community members. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, bullying is a form of youth violence that can cause physical injury, social and emotional distress. Bullying has serious consequences which put youth at higher risk for substance abuse, academic problems, mental health issues, and violence in adolescence and adulthood.

During the Be SAFE workshop, participants will:

  • Share perspectives on the prevalence and types of bullying behaviors affecting their communities – and explore how these perspectives connect with recent research.
  • Examine bullying, bias and harassment through the lens of differences.
  • Explore key strategies for addressing these complex issues.
