PREVnet: Guidelines for Bullying Intervention and Prevention in Schools

PREVNet created Guidelines for Bullying Intervention and Prevention in Schools in partnership with the Canadian Association of Principals (CAP). This pamphlet covers the core questions of "what is bullying?" and "how do children and youth bully others?". It explores the prevalence of bullying in Canadian schools, as well as perspectives on intervention and strategy pillars for social change. It also provides up-to-date information on bullying, victimization and research-based guidelines. Bullying is a destructive relationship problem among students.

Promoting Relationships and Eliminating Violence Network (PREVNet) is a national network of leading researchers and organizations working together to stop bullying in Canada. It is the first of its kind in Canada. It has three key messages:

  • Bullying is wrong and hurtful
  • Bullying is a relationships problem
  • Promoting relationships and eliminating violence are everybody's responsibility

PREVNet works to make Canada a world-leader in bullying prevention as well as promoting healthy relationships. It has additional up-to-date resources and tools available on its website, as well as partner organizations, events and more.
