Description: 

The 2011 national Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign explores common, everyday behaviors and offers individuals viable, responsible ways to intervene. This primary prevention approach helps to create environments where people are safe in their relationships, families, neighborhoods, schools, work places and communities. This year’s SAAM brings together resources and information, thus offering everyone the opportunity to address behaviors before sexual violence occurs.

Teen Dating Violence (DV) Prevention and Awareness Month is a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in youth relationships and promote programs that prevent it during the month of February.

The repercussions of teen dating violence are impossible to ignore – they hurt not just the young people victimized but also their families, friends, schools and communities. Throughout February, organizations and individuals nationwide are coming together to highlight the need to educate young people about healthy relationships, teach healthy relationship skills and prevent the devastating cycle of abuse.

Description: 

This training program employs an interactive approach that will promote the creation of bullying-resistant school communities. The context of the training will operate in a way that fully anticipates the possibility of bullying problems, prepares the attendees to recognize and respond to problems when they occur, prepares attendees to improve management of bullying incidents, establishes criteria to reduce the number of bullying incidents, provides guidelines for better utilization of community partnerships for response to bullying problems, and works to analyze key issues and causes of bullying problems in order to formulate a viable response.

The three-part agenda will feature the following themes and concepts:

  1. understanding the phenomenon and consequences of bullying problems,
  2. understanding the nature and issues of bullying at our schools, and
  3. creating a bullying-resistant school.

Registration for training program is due before May 31, 2011.  More information is avaliable online.
