Preventing and Intervening in (Cyber)bullying

Description

Unfortunately, (cyber)bullying can appear anywhere, anytime. Students (and sometimes even teachers) are subject to bullying in schools. It may lead to early school leaving and can affect mental and physical health, as well as the academic performance of individuals or whole groups of people. It is not acceptable. We have to deal with the problem and prove that there are solutions to it.

This course aims to show parents, students, teachers, and headmasters the different possibilities of prevention and intervention of daily aggression (and victimization) that occur in schools and online. The participant will learn to reduce the frequency and extent of school aggression.

Among other activities, inside or outside the classroom, participants (individually, in pairs, or in groups) will give their prepared presentations, get to know how to begin a school campaign, plan a school-based aggression prevention program together, take part in role-playing games and drama, become acquainted with conflict management strategies, shoot short videos, analyze short scenes from films, and investigate participant roles in bullying situations.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to handle difficult and aggressive students, deal with bullies and help victims, and know how to create an accepting and calm school atmosphere. They will be familiar with different intervention and prevention programs.
