The Center for Safe Schools is pleased to present the Bullying Prevention Third Thursday professional development series. This series is a way for educators, bullying prevention trainers, social workers, after-school professionals and a host of community partners to become more familiar with bullying prevention, social emotional learning, cutting edge research, trauma-informed approaches and many more topics that help support school climate improvement in-person and online.
The return of the high quality learning experience is possible in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Safe and Humane Schools Institute on Family and Neighborhood Life Clemson University, and the Capital Area Intermediate Unit.
Our series kicks off on January 21 with Best Practices in Bullying Prevention: Examining a Three-Tiered Approach. Bullying is still one of the most pressing issues facing our youth, affecting individuals across ethnicity, gender, grade, and socioeconomic status. One of the best tools for decreasing the problems associated with bullying is to implement evidence-based prevention strategies. Current research findings continue to support a comprehensive, three-tiered approach to bullying prevention.
