Peer aggression and bullying remain hot topics in the media with school shootings, high profile bullying and cyberbullying cases, and major plotlines on televisions shows such as "Glee." Parents, teachers, and community leaders know that peer aggression is a problem, but they are often unsure of how best to deal with it. This webinar provides teachers with a vocabulary for identifying, naming, and assessing incidents of peer aggression. We will share how bystanders can be empowered to speak up when they see peer aggression happen, and will discuss effective strategies for "coaching" bystanders into action. Through a shared language, adults and students in schools are better able to accurately describe, mediate, and even prevent aggression in schools.

You will walk away from this webinar with:

  • A list of the current myths about aggression
  • A definition of peer aggression, specifically relational aggression and bullying
  • Ways to assess levels of aggression, bullying, and violence
  • An understanding of how to identify the roles in peer aggression
  • Several bystander strategies for intervening in aggression

Thank you for pointing out the differences between aggression and bullying. Our students have a hard time telling the difference between the two. You also provided a great deal of interventions to use in multiple situations.
