Bullying Prevention

Ref: C2421293

Bullying remains a hot topic whether taking place in the school, workplace, home or in the neighborhood. It destroys many innocent lives making them full of fear, misery and pain. Victims want the bullying to stop, but would also rather it didn't start in the first place. This course will explore how helping the growth of emotional health and intelligence can help prevent bullying behavior. It will be of interest to those working, or intending to work, in primary or secondary schools, and those working or intending to work in any of the care services, especially those working with families. People wanting to work in Youth and Community would also find the ideas presented in the course to be useful.
