Last week, I attended the #VetoViolence Twitter Chat. It was hosted by the CDC Injury Center and attended by a lot of experts in the field, practitioners in schools and youth centers as well as parents. (Many of us fall into at least one, if not more, of those categories.) The discussion was informative and hopeful; I won’t try to reiterate it here – but I did want to share some of the resources that came up during the discussion:
- StopBullying.gov – a great resources for schools, parents, kids and people who care for kids. Starts with warning signs of bullying and provides a wide range of helpful resources.
- Keenan West – Never End – video appealing to kids, calling for kids to unite and stand up for each other
- Bullying (52 Brilliant Ideas) – a free Kindle book for parents
- Anti-Defamation League – Policy and Program Recommendations on Confronting Bullying and Cyberbullyinig
- Cyberbullying Toolkit for Educators: Standup, Don’t Stand By – a video
- Summary of Findings: CSN Bullying Prevention Environmental Scan – they asked 5 questions about anti-bullying policies and procedures and present their findings
- 7 Ways to Block a Cyberbully DVD - details seven effective strategies for dealing with a digital bully. (Includes video for students and adults)
- Teen Cyberbullying Investigated Book –a guide to help young people understand what cyberbullying is and is not, recognize when they may be its victims or perpetrators, and learn tactics for successfully dealing with it.
If you have a resource to share, please let us know or consider submitting it to the StopBullying.gov database of resources.
