Increasing Capacity for Reducing Bullying and Its Impact on the Lifecourse of Youth Involved

Type: Stand Alone Workshop
Topics: Children and Families
Board: Board on Children, Youth, and Families

Activity Description

The Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council will convene a committee to plan and conduct a two-day public workshop that will identify and highlight evidence that can inform a multidisciplinary road map on next steps for the field of bullying prevention. The workshop will feature presentations from invited speakers and discussions that will highlight research findings that advance our understanding of bullying prevention and intervention for youth. The committee will develop the agenda for the workshop, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions.

The workshop topics will consider conceptual models and interventions that have proven effective in decreasing bullying and the antecedents to bullying, while increasing protective factors which mitigate the negative health impact of bullying. Key sectors that are involved in bullying prevention will be identified in order to understand the opportunities and barriers to implementing a blueprint for bullying prevention. The workshop will also include topics that will identify gaps in the current research that may inform a future consensus study on bullying prevention.


This project is sponsored by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
