"Eight teachers including our Principal from our small, PK-Grade 8 religious school in northwestern Wisconsin took a "Positive Behavioral Interventions & Support" course through SCT during spring/summer of 2013. As a result of the course, we learned much about PBIS and now we are continuing to develop and plan to implement a PBIS system. The instructor, Tammy Berg, worked with us along the way, and was extremely flexible in allowing us to work on many of the course projects as a team. Thank you Tammy! Looking forward to more professional development coursework with you in the future!"

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.
