The programme will be led by respectme
respectme, Scotland’s anti-bullying service, was launched in March 2007. The service is fully funded by the Scottish Government and is managed by SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) in partnership with LGBT Youth Scotland.
“Our vision is of a respecting, just, equal and inclusive Scotland in which all children and young people can live free from bullying and harassment and are encouraged to reach their full potential. Our work is driven by a focus on children’s rights.”
The overall aim of the Programme is to introduce participants to bullying behaviours and the range of practices that can be used to address bullying. The objectives of the day are to:
- Interpret behaviours to distinguish what bullying behaviour is and what it is not
- Recognise prejudice-based bullying and the value of embracing diversity
- Recognise cyberbullying
- Recognise that bullying is a breach of children’s rights
- Identify the signs that bullying may be taking place
- Explain the factors that may lead to a person bullying
- Recognise the effects that bullying can have on mental health and well-being and appreciate the journey of recovery
- Describe anti-bullying strategies that can be used to inform policies and put them into practice
This will be an interactive day encompassing case studies and discussion.
