Understanding and Preventing Youth Bullying & Peer Victimization during the Pandemic

Whether you are a student, parent, educator, or school leader, bullying and peer victimization in school are serious concerns in the U.S. and around the world. Research shows that by creating socially and emotionally supportive spaces, schools can foster a climate of inclusion and respect among both students and staff. Join us to hear Dr. Dorothy Espelage, William C. Friday Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of North Carolina, and gain insights around:
-What does bullying and peer victimization look like during the pandemic?
-Who is most at-risk for victimization during the pandemic?
-How are we using SEL during the pandemic to reduce isolation and victimization?
