During our first webinar in this series, half of the attendees said they were not involved in a formal bullying prevention program. So with this installment, our panel of experts will share characteristics and specific examples of proven bullying prevention approaches for middle schools. They will explain key considerations for evaluating bullying prevention programs, and will discuss why it’s important to establish an effective evaluation process before creating any intervention.
