Olweus Bullying Prevention Program reduces all
forms of bullying
The Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP) effectively reduces all five forms of bullying: verbal, physical, indirect/relational, sexual, and cyber/electronic bullying.

This is demonstrated in a large-scale study that involved more than 30,000 students in grades 3-11 over the course of three years. The International Journal of Bullying Prevention recently referenced the study in an evaluation of OBPP. See the full article.

OBPP Aligns with Common Core Standards! Here's how:

Recognizing Bullying

Bullying can take on many forms. It's important to understand what bullying is, and what it is not.

Warning Signs of Bullying

Students who are being bullied often exhibit some warning signs. Also, it's important to recognize the characteristics of students who bully, which may help prevent bullying and allow for early intervention

The Impact of Bullying

A single student who bullies can have a wide-ranging impact on the students they bully, students who observe bullying, and the overall climate of the school and community.

Tips for Addressing Bullying

School administrators, teachers and staff, and parents can play an important role in reporting, stopping, and preventing bullying.

Bullying and Sexual Orientation

Verbal bullying is the most frequent form of bullying, and can involve negative language that is sexual in nature. Sometimes, this sexual language refers to another person's actual or perceived sexual orientation.

What is Cyber Bullying?

Cyber bullying is bullying through electronic media -- e-mail, texting, social networks, blogs, websites, or digital messages or images send to a cellular phone.
