Bullying Prevention Training Modules from StopBullying.gov
The Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources Services Administration is pleased to announce the launch of comprehensive Bullying Prevention Training Modules to empower individuals and organizations to address bullying in schools, neighborhoods and communities across the country.
Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius highlighted the new Training Modules in her remarks at the Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention 2012 Summit where she said:
Over and over again we’ve heard from local leaders who say ‘I want to establish a bullying prevention plan for my community, but I don’t know where to begin.’ Now, they have a great place to begin. They can download this research-based training right from the website, adapt it to their own needs and deliver it at their own trainings and community events. The Training Module is also paired with a Community Action Toolkit that leaders can use to develop and roll out more comprehensive prevention strategies tailored to their own communities’ needs.
Local leaders interested in learning more and organizing their own bullying prevention and response efforts can access and download the Training Modules at www.StopBullying.gov.The full set of resources includes:
- Training Module with Speaker Notes – a module with suggested talking points that helps facilitate the training, which includes the latest research to help participants create an action plan and plan a community event
- Training Module PowerPoint – a presentation for use at a community event, workshop or town hall meeting
- Community Action Toolkit- a supplemental guide to the modules that includes tip sheets, a template event agenda, action planning matrix and sample feedback forms
- Misdirections Video – a six-minute video featuring Dr. Catherine Bradshaw, a bullying prevention researcher, discussing some approaches to avoid in bullying prevention and response
