Despite bullying being a common phenomenon, the public, schools and governments are often not fully aware of the severe and long-lasting consequences it can cause for the individuals involved and their surroundings. Victims, as well as perpetrators and bystanders, can experience negative effects on an individual level (e.g. feelings of anxiety), family level (e.g. deteriorating social bonds), school level (e.g. educational underachievement), and community level (e.g. negative community atmosphere). It is therefore essential for families, schools, communities and governments to acknowledge possible risk factors on each level and implement anti-bullying strategies accordingly.
For this reason, the webinar will focus on an ecological approach towards effective anti-bullying interventions. Possible risk- and protective factors will be discussed, as well as evidence-based prevention strategies against bullying that can be applied on every level of a minor’s life (individual, family, school and community level).
The webinar will take place on Tuesday 25 January 2022 between 14:00 - 15:00 CET. Participation is free but registration is mandatory. The access link will be sent prior to the webinar.
