On Wednesday, August 24th, join Professor Jonathan Todres and Dr. Mark Hatzenbuehler, members of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Committee on the Biological and Psychosocial Effects of Peer Victimization: Lessons for Bullying Prevention, to learn more about a new report, Preventing Bullying Through Science, Policy, and Practice.
In this webinar, Professor Todres and Dr. Hatzenbuehler will review some of the committee’s findings, conclusions, and recommendations pertaining to the role of laws and policies in responding to and preventing bullying among youth.
The perception of bullying has shifted from being a normal part of growing up to a pressing social and publich health issue.
Dan Olweus, known as the “founding father” of bullying research, recently appeared in Clemson to explore the subject of bullying and related research with Clemson faculty, staff and students. Olweus delivered the talk, “School Bullying: Basic Facts, Intervention and Long-Term Effects,” on June 16 in Clemson’s Watt Innovation Center.
Preparation is underway for an upcoming report by the Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence Against Children that will serve as a basis document for the General Assembly's " global recommendations against bullying " to be issued in United Nation's (UN) 71st session in fall 2016.
