Training opportunities in Hampshire to foster the prevention of bullying or address it once it has occurred

Anti-Bullying Interventions

Prevention is the best way of dealing with bullying, but unfortunately it can still happen.  It is important to choose a suitable intervention, as the wrong approach may be ineffective or even exacerbate the situation.

This course outlines a range of interventions from sanctions to more restorative approaches, including building the resilience of all concerned.

The course aims to:

  • Present an overview of six possible evidence-based interventions, outlining when they are appropriate.

  • Provide opportunities to go through the steps of 4 of these, so participants feel confident to put them into practice.
