Stand Tall Against Bullying

Suzanne Peck, Producer, Author and Educator 


Groundbreaking new research on the impact of bullying on mental and physical health reinforces the importance of intervening early, addressing persistent effects, and teaching children skills to cope with future bullying. This presentation will use film clips and best practice examples to illuminate research-based strategies to deal with bullying including prevention, communication, and action.  Take a proactive approach with coaching, know the signs for the common types of bullying, and provide support for parent/clients to be proactive.


At the conclusion of the talk, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the impact of bullying on physical and psychological health.
  • Recognize the 4 types of bullying and ways to prevent and respond to each type.
  • Identify strategies to intervene to reverse the downward health trajectory experienced by youth who are repeated targets.
