As part of CHOP's Partner for Prevention program, the 20-session classroom-based PRAISE program teaches kids strategies for dealing with bullying and related skills such as problem solving and empathy. Remarkable change in attitudes and behavior was demonstrated in the students' Fall 2014 leadership projects, which took the form of illustrated storybooks.
CHOP's Violence Prevention Initiative (VPI) has developed new bullying prevention resources for families, educators, and youth violence stakeholders, including a recorded webinar and downloadable fact sheets.
CHOP's Violence Prevention Initiative is hosting a webinar on the topic of bullying prevention for educators, school counselors, and administrators in elementary and middle school grades.
Stephen Leff, PhD and Christine Waanders, PhD of CHOP's Violence Prevention Initiative (VPI) will be participating in a web chat hosted by 6ABC on bullying prevention in school settings. They will share knowledge and best practices cultivated over years of research and the implementation of VPI's Partner for Prevention program, which takes a whole-school approach to bullying prevention for vulnerable 3-5 grade youth in select Philadelphia elementary schools.
Learn how employing a whole-school approach to bullying prevention, rather than singling out the bully or the victim, can lead to a culture of acceptance and empowerment.
