Understanding and Responding to Bullying: What Parents Can Do
New Web Video
In recognition of Bullying Prevention Month, the Highmark Foundation and its partners at the Center for Safe Schools and Windber Research Institute is pleased to launch a special video presentation Understanding and Responding to Bullying: What Parents Can Do.
Bullying is a national concern due to its prevalence and documented effects on health and learning. Parents whose children are affected by bullying may wonder what they can do to help. Others may wonder what they can do to prepare a child to respond when confronted with peer aggression.
This video presentation provides information about bullying, its effects, and how parents can help their children deal with bullying issues. It also includes information about the role of the school in addressing bullying and tips for how parent groups can initiate a bullying prevention partnership with educators.
The presentation is part of the Third Thursday Series offered by the Center for Safe Schools, which provides the most current research or relevant topics to the field of bullying prevention. The 2012-2013 series is supported with funding from the Highmark Foundation. Educators, parents and youth-serving professionals are encouraged to attend.
