Promoting Healthy Relationships for Youth: Creating Spaces that Support Equity, Diversity and Inclusion


Additional (OPTIONAL) Professional Development Opportunity - Thursday, May 16th, 2019

On May 16th, you will have the option of attending a full-day training session (9am-4pm).

Bullying Prevention Facts and Tools for Schools - Workshops for Educators

Facilitator: Dr. Joanne Cummings, Clinical Psychologist and PREVNet's Director of Knowledge Mobilization


PREVNet's Dr. Joanne Cummings will facilitate selected workshops from the newly developed series of Facts and Tools Workshops for Educators.  These interactive workshops have been designed to be delivered in one hour and have been reviewed by educators for their content and applicability in the classroom and school setting. The workshops have been developed from PREVNet's popular resource "Bullying Prevention: Facts and Tools for Schools".


PREVNet’s Bullying Prevention: Tools for Schools (BPTS) is a free, bilingual, downloadable resource with 36 integrated Fact Sheets and Tools that provides school administrators, educators, guidance, and mental health professionals with evidence-based resources to prevent school bullying and to intervene when bullying occurs. The resource is organized into four sections: Education, Assessment, Prevention/Intervention, and Policy. Co-created with the Ontario Ministry of Education, feedback from educators is that the BPTS is “a treasure trove of user-friendly yet state-of-the-art information.”  We have also just completed a set of 12 brief workshops complete with a slide deck, Facilitator Guide, Hand-out, and evaluation tool based on the BPTS. We will explore all components of this resource using small and large group discussion.  


Participants will:

  1. Develop a good working knowledge of the BPTS
  2. Enhance capacity to implement scaffolding strategies – the provision of individualized supports to students that foster development in areas where they are struggling and to leverage their strengths.
  3. Enhance capacity to implement social architecture strategies – intentional actions that create enhanced opportunities for students to have positive interactions with teachers, peers, family and the community.
  4. Enhance capacity to implement research-informed school-wide policies and procedures that promote student well-being and reduce bullying
