The ATA has teamed up with Olweus to create the most comprehensive bullying prevention program available anywhere: Children will learn valuable skills on how to recognize and react to bullying in this engaging and interactive seminar. The key takeaways we focus on are developing appropriate responses to difficult situations, confidence building and leadership skills. Bullying is one of the troubling issues plaguing schools today. Research has shown that unchecked bullying leads to bigger problems, including emotional distress, decreased academic performance, delinquency, depression and even thoughts of suicide. It is destructive for the kids being bullied, the kids doing the bullying, and even kids who witness the bullying.
