Research is clear: Bullying is learned and can be unlearned. What’s more, cultivating empathy is the forgotten antidote to bullying. In this webinar, Dr. Michele Borba, Ed.D., shared evidence that the best way to reduce bullying is not with a packaged program but with homegrown, data-driven efforts by a staff that applies only proven practices. Best yet, none of these strategies cost a dime!

Dr. Borba’s empowering, informative presentation is brimming with real-life stories, the latest behavioral research, and simple tools to reduce bullying and victimization and inspire upstanders to speak up. Educators will learn to instill empathy in their classrooms, schools, organizations, and homes.

This recorded presentation will be of interest to a wide range of K–12 educators in private and public schools, including classroom teachers, administrators, social workers, counselors, principals, and classified personnel.
