On average, only 15% of students intervene when they see bullying, although research shows that bystanders are successful over 80% of the time and often within the first 10 seconds of intervention. Join Leigh Anne Kraemer-Naser as she addresses the role of the bystander and explores reasons why bystanders are often reluctant to take action. Leigh Anne will provide strategies for encouraging students to become "upstanders" - those who positively intervene in bullying - and include suggestions for safe student interventions. Additionally, she will share specific advice and ways to successfully role play intervention strategies.

Although not required, it would be beneficial to view the companion webinar in this two-part series, "The Language of Peer Aggression: Recognizing Bullying."

great presentation. really appreciated the response at the end about but my Dad says. All too common to hear that.
This was great; I will use this information to help students recognize these forms of aggression and help them to stop these harmful forms of hurting others.
Aggression is a behavior intended to hurt or harm and can be physical verbal or cyber.
Some ways to help are use language consistently, let the students know I am concerned, establish and maintain relationships with them, believe the stories they tell and do something when I see aggression.
