Bullying Prevention. A Center Quick Training Aid.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
Bullying is by far the biggest violence problem on many school campuses in many countries. As with other forms of violence, the conditions at school seem to play a role in minimizing or exacerbating bullying. Schools need to create caring, supportive, and safe environments and a sense of community in order to reduce violence and promote well-being. This quick training aid presents a brief set of resources to guide those providing an in-service training session on bullying prevention. The packet contains a brief introduction to the topic with key talking points, fact sheets, tools and handouts, and a directory of model programs and additional resources. (GCP)
