Cyberbullying: Recognizing, Preventing, and Responding to It with Brent Maguire

  • 30 Minute Online Session 2: 

The Language of Peer Aggression: Encouraging Bystanders to take Action with Leigh Anne Kraemer-Naser

While adults often understand the hurt that is typically caused by physical bullying, many of them either underestimate or do not realize the far-reaching and potentially devastating impact that cyberbullying can have on a victim. Because cyberbullying occurs online, often under the guise of anonymity, it can be especially vicious and intimidating. And, because it can be "witnessed" by scores of online spectators and perpetrated 24/7, the impact is far-reaching and victims often feel they have nowhere to hide. In part 2 of this 2-part series, join Brent Maguire as he discusses how to recognize the signs of cyberbullying and victimization. He will explain the criminal aspect of cyberbullying and share strategies for responding to and preventing cyberbullying. In addition, Brent will cover how to monitor Internet use at school and provide suggestions for the school's approach to cyberbullying.

On average, only 15% of students intervene when they see bullying, although research shows that bystanders are successful over 80% of the time and often within the first 10 seconds of intervention. Join Leigh Anne Kraemer-Naser as she addresses the role of the bystander and explores reasons why bystanders are often reluctant to take action. Leigh Anne will provide strategies for encouraging students to become "upstanders" - those who positively intervene in bullying - and include suggestions for safe student interventions. Additionally, she will share specific advice and ways to successfully role play intervention strategies. Although not required, it would be beneficial to view the companion webinar in this two-part series, "The Language of Peer Aggression: Recognizing Bullying."
