Course Description:

Victim advocates often struggle to determine their proper role in addressing bullying behavior. Emerging social networking and other communication tools as well as a shift in youth behavior further complicates the situation. Historically, bullying occurred within or in close proximity to a school or neighborhood; however, technology allows present day bullies to extend their reach. Bullying, cyberbullying and sexting are significant problems facing our communities because of the psychological, emotional, behavioral, and physical repercussions that can stem from the victimization. This four hour course will provide information regarding all aspects of bullying, including cyberbullying and sexting, as well as their affects. In addition, the course will focus on identifying bullying behavior, the legal implications, and best practices in serving victims of bullying. There will also be an opportunity for those in attendance to ask questions and discuss available resources.
