During this one-day workshop, Dr. Englander will review recent research and materials about bullying and cyberbullying, including two curricula, which attendees will be trained to utilize. Topics covered will include: how to tell distinguish between teasing and bullying; how to anticipate which behaviors are likely to be visible during a bullying episode; how to interact with students to ensure that they understand the importance of gateway behaviors and how to respond to bullying; facts about cyberbullying, including comparison data on cyberbullying at the elementary, middle, and upper levels; when cyber-behaviors cross boundaries (e.g., self-cyberbullying); and how to work with bystanders and parents.
Comments from last year’s workshop at Milton Academy:
Dr. Englander was very knowledgeable about the topic, with clear recommendations for addressing the issues and data to back things up. She presented in a very compelling way, and was well organized. I left feeling as if I have a much better grasp of the complexities of bullying and tools with which to address them.
I thought Elizabeth's presentation of research was excellent as well as her no-nonsense approach to sorting out what is bullying and what is not.
I was engaged and interested the whole time and will be able to bring lots of this back to the work I do. I especially thought the to-dos and takeaways were helpful.
