Unfortunately, (cyber)bullying can appear anywhere, anytime. Students (and sometimes even teachers) are subjected to bullying in schools. It may lead to early school leaving and can affect mental and physical health as well as the academic performance of individuals or whole groups of people. It is not acceptable. We have to deal with the problem and prove that there are solutions to it.
This course aims to show parents, students, teachers, and headmasters the different possibilities of prevention and intervention of daily aggression (and victimization) that occur in schools and online. The participant will learn to reduce the frequency and extent of school aggression.
