Responding to and Preventing Bias, Bullying and Violence in Schools

This course will examine the dynamics of bullying and harassment in schools, with particular attention to the risk of escalation if bullying is not addressed with consistency and to the emotional impact on targets of harassment and bystanders.  We will discuss and explore a variety of strategies for responding both to routine incidents of harassment and major incidents which affect the entire school community.  We will explore prevention strategies for use both in the classroom and in the hallways.
