Bullying is still one of the most pressing issues facing our youth, affecting individuals across ethnicity, gender, grade, and socioeconomic status. Bullying can have serious health consequences. One of the best tools for decreasing the problems associated with bullying is to implement evidence-based prevention strategies that address bullying at the schoolwide, classroom, individual and community levels.
Current research findings continue to support a comprehensive, three-tiered approach to bullying prevention. A research review will be provided highlighting key findings and supportive resources will be shared.
