Bullying Intervention in Schools
Bullying prevention in schools is a full-time exercise. For true change to take place, the culture of a school must be transformed. But it’s not as difficult as it sounds. With a year round bullying prevention program, clear expectations of faculty and staff and established guidelines for how to treat incidents, students and adults can be a part of a culture of caring.
Assessments—such as surveys—can help schools determine the frequency and locations of bullying behavior. They can also gauge the effectiveness of current prevention and intervention efforts. Knowing what’s going on can help school staff select appropriate prevention and response strategies.
Engage Parents & Youth
Schools can do a great deal to prevent bullying, but they can’t do it alone. Parents and youth also have a role to play in preventing bullying. One mechanism for engaging parents and youth, a school safety committee, can bring the community together to keep bullying prevention at school active.
