Bullying

Our Bullying Program

Bullying ProgramNearly every state has introduced or enacted bullying legislation that mandates school districts to intervene or prevent persistent, pervasive and/or severe acts of bullying action. Three training courses provide clear methods and procedures to meet those legal requirements and practical tools that participants implement to prevent and neutralize the effects of bullying. The interaction of human dynamics and defined legal requirements are combined to provide resolution of day to day issues and policy requirements that will create a safe and productive environment. Onsite, Online or Video material is delivered with quality, interactivity and in-depth coverage.

All McGrath Bullying programs address the issue from two perspectives: the human dynamics involved and legal liability.

  • We look at bullying from the point of view of victims, bullies and bystanders. How are each affected? What are the signs?
  • McGrath also takes a 360-degree approach, providing training for everyone in the school community.
  • Bullying is a Safety Issue
  • Bullying is a Legal Issue
