Identifying Peer Abuse and Clearing the Haze: Eliminating Hazing from Our Schools
Presented by Dr. Brian Crow, Professor, Sports Management, Slippery Rock University.
A new resource on the forms of peer abuse, such as hazing, teen dating violence and bullying, developed by the Center for Safe Schools, will be discussed. In this session participants will also be provided with a clear definition of hazing and identify how it is different from bullying. While most research on hazing has been conducted among college students, more recent studies have focused on hazing at the high school level. Strategies for teachers, administrators, coaches, students, and parents to recognize and eliminate hazing from schools will also be discussed.
