School Resource Officers Bullying Prevention and Intervention Training

The Problem:

Youth-on-youth mistreatment undermines student achievement, is harmful to young people’s social and emotional development and leads to increased suspensions, all of which are linked to the “school to prison pipeline”. Even though there are policies and consequences designed to deter these behaviors, research has shown that these measures alone are not enough. Reducing emotional and physical violence on campus can be best achieved by equipping all staff with a greater understanding and increased skills for building strong youth-adult relationships.

The Solution:

The School Resource Officers Bullying Prevention and Intervention Training will help SRO’s understand the nature and extent of emotional and physical violence, relational aggression, bullying and cyberbullying – and their impact on learning/academic achievement, attendance and participation in school, child/youth development and school climate and security.

Outcomes and Benefits:

This training will demonstrate ways to significantly increase the ease and effectiveness of adult interactions with students. Participants will leave equipped with better observation, relationship and intervention skills that they can immediately use to:

  • Identify, prevent and de-escalate student mistreatment;
  • Build and maintain a school climate of safety, kindness, inclusion and respect;
  • Enhance self-awareness and self-management of personal triggers and reactions;
  • Shift students’ perceptions of SRO’s as solely focused on “catching and punishing” to “connecting and correcting”;
  • Develop positive relationships with students using relational power vs. positional power.

Participants:

This training is designed for school resource officers and campus supervisors.

Scheduling and Customization:

The School Resource Officers Bullying Prevention and Intervention Training is a one-day, 6-hour training for 15-35 participants.

Customized services are also available to meet the specific needs of a school or district. These include consulting, presentations and shorter workshops with larger or smaller groups.
