Bullies in the Classroom – “Mean” Behavior and Aggression
This webinar is sponsored by Second Step, an initiative of Committee for Children.
Have you heard the taunts in your early learning program: “You can’t play with us!” or, “You can’t come to my birthday party!”? Have you ever wondered how your role as an administrator can influence teachers and parents to address the early childhood origins of “mean” behavior? Join this insight-building webinar, by Kristen Darling-Churchill from ChildTrends to learn more about the relationship between early childhood experiences and later bullying behaviors.
The existing body of research on bullying in older children suggests that the roots begin early. Early educators need to be able to identify and address the antecedents of bullying before these behaviors become organized. This session will provide background information about how to identify the precursors of bullying, and help you consider your role in mitigating these behaviors. In this session, you will learn:
- The developmental trajectory to bullying behavior;
- Theories about social and environmental contributors to bullying;
- Promising strategies and models designed to prevent bullying;
- Suggestions for policies and classroom strategies to address “mean” behavior and aggression in early childhood; and
- Resources for further research and implementation.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
