"I found the strategies and the breakouts of bullies and victims sides of the issue were the useful part of this conference. Great information presented. Great presentation. The speaker has a great passion for his work and has obviously researched the material. I found it all useful."
"I found talking about ways to help the bully, victim and bystanders to be the most useful part of this conference. I thought the conference was good and very informative, I think the speaker had a lot of valuable information based on research. The slide presentation was good and handy, since the speaker had to cover a lot of information quickly, it was good to see it in print and know that we could view it again. I found the conference very interesting. Thank you!"
"I was actually overwhelmed with the scope of the problem, but what I appreciated most was the approach that instead of "solving" the problem, we equip our young people with life skills to cope with bullying. Initially, it was a bit of information overload, but as I have had time to reflect, I can see how I can incorporate this in many different areas of our school culture. I appreciated the speaker's humor which was a relief on a very heavy topic. "
"I found the guidelines for presentation and education of bullying to be the most useful part of the conference. I also liked the idea of having the students create their own rules for the classroom. The conference was very informative."
