Stopping Bullying in its Tracks: Understanding Power Imbalance

from 35.00

Course Description: Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school-aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. In order to effectively address bullying behavior, one must first examine its underlying causes. This course analyzes the bias and power structure in groups and individuals that leads to aggressive or harassing behavior.

This course will examine the types of privileges existing in the classroom, workplace, and other environments. With privilege, both seen and unseen, comes the bias that perpetuates the imbalance of power among students, peers, administrators, and faculty. By exploring this power structure and our own bias, participants will understand root causes of bullying and develop strategies to address it.

Activities in this course will include discussions on privilege and bias, the formation of peer social groups and isolation, micro-aggression, a review of bullying behavior and creating an environment to reduce its pervasiveness, then end with critical legal information and resources for practicing educators, parents, and counselors.
