Addresses how to identify and effectively intervene when bullying occurs (including tips on de-escalation).

DESIGN TEAM NOTE: These modules are intentionally designed to be offered as a series. The content of each module complements and completes the content contained in the other module. While Module 1 (See Something. Do Something. Intervening in Bullying Behavior) addresses how to identify and effectively intervene when bullying occurs (including tips on de-escalation), Module 2 (Creating a Supportive Bus Climate: Preventing Bullying) considers effective strategies to build a bus climate where bullying is less likely to occur. It’s our belief that bus drivers and students alike are best served when BOTH modules are covered with drivers within a short timeframe of one another.

*Please return to this site once you’ve delivered this module and complete a short survey (see link trainer feedback form links above) to provide feedback on how this content can be improved in the future.
