We do this by training our teachers and adults in schools to understand trauma-informed approaches, social-emotional learning, restorative practices, and culturally competent practices. This research talk will discuss two decades of research on bullying and other forms of youth violence. Meta-analytic results will be highlighted to demonstrate efficacy of school-based programs and their components. Innovative efforts to address bullying, sexual violence, and school violence will also be highlighted. These innovative efforts involve developing apps for students to communicate both emotional and physical safety concerns, youth-led student campaigns to address mental health issues and school climate concerns, and professional development training programs for school police officers.
