Select the targeted age group, then the level of intervention.
  • Elementary School

Bullying Behaviors include regularly being mean to others, spreading rumors about others, excluding others, and making fun of others. Often, students who bully others are also bullied by their peers. Victims of bullying behavior can feel isolated, become depressed, avoid school, and are at risk for suicidal ideation and attempts.

Interventions and supports for Bullying Behaviors focus on interrupting these behaviors when they are witnessed, reporting these behaviors to adults, increasing social skills for bullies and victims of bullying, and increasing empathy and recognition of others’ emotions.

    Online
    teacher and student-report assessment tools
    A dashboard system in which
    these data are shared with schools and linked to a menu of evidence-based interventions that schools can choose from to implement
