Children consistently rate bullying as one of the most important personal issues facing them. It infringes their rights and damages their childhoods. For those caught up in it, the consequences for their education, health, safety, positive social engagement and economic well-being can be serious and may be severe and long-lasting. This session aims to support people working with children and young people to: understand the various forms bullying takes; be able to recognise bullying behaviour; understand what you can do to prevent and respond to it; know how to teach assertiveness strategies to young people to reduce the likelihood of them being bullied. Technology is fast paced and ever changing. This course will also cover the bullying our young people can encounter online, and how to help them protect against it.
