Thursday, October 15, 2015
During this event, Susan Limber, Ph.D., researcher and author of resources for the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, will present the latest information collected from a database of more than three million students who have completed the Olweus Bullying Questionnaire (OBQ). The information presented in this webinar is drawn from the responses of 20,000 students in grades 3-12 who completed the questionnaire during the 2013-2014 school year, prior to implementing the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program.
Participants will be able to:
- Explain how the study was conducted and how it is unique.
- Describe the nature and prevalence of bullying among American youth, including the percentages of students who are involved in bullying, the most and least common forms of bullying, and where bullying occurs.
- Describe students’ responses to bullying that they experience and witness.
- Describe how students believe their peers and teachers respond to bullying.
- Explain differences in students' perceptions, according to their gender, age, and experiences with bullying.
Written through an ongoing partnership with Clemson University and Professional Data Analysts, Inc. (PDA), the 2014 Olweus Bullying Status Report includes the most up-to-date, accurate and well-tested data on the state of bullying in U.S. schools today from students’ perspective.
