Bullying is often a precursor to other forms of youth violence. Violence-based behaviors may include identity-based bullying, gender-based harassment, and sexual harassment. Educating youth about bullying prevention is a part of prevention safety.
This webinar reviews two decades of research and practice on bullying and cyberbullying, including definitional issues, prevalence, risk, and protective factors associated with different forms of bullying. Additionally, this presentation discusses rates of these behaviors and identifies common targets of intervention.
By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Define bullying and cyberbullying
- Understand the subgroups of youth at risk for bullying involvement
- Identify risk and protective factors associated with bullying and its developmental changes into other forms of violence
- Recognize the effectiveness of school-based interventions
