Promoting Healthy Relationships to Prevent Bullying
Thursday, February 26, 2015
1:00 - 2:00 pm, EST
Wendy M. Craig, Ph.D., FRSC
Healthy relationships with parents, teachers, adults at school, and within the neighbourhoods children and youth live are related to health, social, emotional, and academic outcomes. Despite the significance of relationships, fewer youth in Canada are reporting having high quality relationships with parents, teachers, and within their neighbourhoods. The goal of this presentation is to discuss research findings about the central role of relationships in children’s lives and to identify strategies that adults can engage in in their moment to moment interactions to promote relationships and prevent negative outcomes such as bullying.
