No More Bystanders = No More Bullies: Activating Action in Educational Professionals

This is a presentation for educational professionals to make the overwhelming topic of bullying more manageable. It is designed to give educators tangible actions they can implement to be proactive to school bullying. Unlike traditional presentations on bullying, this presentation focuses on educating the educators about their role in bullying episodes and bystanderism.

The learning goals for this presentation are:

•to develop a deeper understanding of bystanderism in educators through framing the ideas in the larger realm of social sciences and research

•to create a paradigm shift in thinking regarding the role of educators in bullying episodes

•to provide the participants with tangible, research based actions which are designed to address the seven stages of the bystander decision making cycle for schools.

•to broaden thinking and apply knowledge to real life examples through action activities, case studies and self –reflection prompts on the topic of bullying
