"As a long-time special education teacher, I am always looking to stay on top of the latest research-based strategies, as well as further my own education, and I feel that the graduate-level courses offered by SPU and instructed by Tammy Berg were an excellent means to accomplish this goal. The courses were well-designed, challenging, and convenient, and whether it was diving deep into the world of educating students with disorders such as ASD and ADHD, or dissecting the minutiae of the RTI process, Instructor Tammy Berg was always readily available for support, clarification, and guidance. If you are currently working in education and looking to advance both your career and your knowledge, I highly recommend both SPU and Instructor Tammy Berg."

How Teachers Can Break the Cycle of Bullying

Online or Print Based Course Online Course Printed Course


Starting with a bottom-line assumption that "bullying is a learned behavior this course explains not only the ways that the bully, the bullied and the bystander are "three characters in a tragic play" but also how "the scripts can be rewritten, new roles created, the plot changed." For each of the three "characters," this course breaks down the behavior that defines each role, analyzes the specific ways that each character can have their behaviors changed for the better, and suggests a range of methods that parents and educators can use to identify bullying behavior and deal with it effectively. This course also provides excellent insights into behaviors related to but not always recognized as bullying, such as cliques, hazing, taunting and sexual bullying. Particularly, this course focuses on the "bystander," the person whose behavior is too often overlooked or excused within the bullying cycle. The cycle of bullying and the steps districts can take to prevent bullying are all components of this course.
