1. We’ve seen the documentaries and heard the statistics frequently enough to know that bullying is a problem. Less often, though, are teachers presented with practical solutionsfor replacing bullying with positive behavior.

    We want to take a proactive stance on bullying and we’re doing it with the help of Mike Dreiblatt, a veteran teacher and president of Stand Up to Bullying.

    Strategies to Reduce Bulling and Social Aggression is a free, 90-minute webinar that will provide listeners with strategies to:

    Identify the common traits of the bully, the bullied, and the bystander
    Develop a school-wide response to bullying, cyber bullying and social aggression.
    Prevent bullying from gaining a foothold in schools

    Mike Dreiblatt is not only a bullying and violence-prevention expert, he is also an authority on the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA 2004) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, offering easy to understand seminars to teachers and administrators. In addition to this, he is co-author of How to Stop Bullying and Social Aggression and author of numerous articles related to bullying prevention and character education.
