"I found the research done on the bullies, victim and bystander from the time of their infancy into adulthood the most useful. It was good to realize that we shouldn't just focus on what is currently taking place but the child's life as a whole. I thoroughly enjoyed the conference. I thought it was very informative and helpful. I will definitely be able to apply this new knowledge into my current work with youth. He (Mark Lakewood) did great. He was a very engaging speaker, which I find especially hard to come by in webinars. Honestly, all of the information was useful."
"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 strategies to prevent bullying very helpful. It gave me ideas that I can use in the classroom to educate my students. I'm impressed by the speaker's knowledge on the topic and that everything was research-based. Overall, the conference was very helpful in my development as a teacher, to help me create a safe and fun environment for my students."
"The practical "hands-on", real world techniques and skills presented were excellent and really usable at the classroom/school level. I thought is very well presented and liked the interactive setup that allowed for input and immediate feedback as well. The speaker did a wonderful job in educating and informing and also avoiding that "talk down personae" He was truly prepared and a knowledgeable scholar. I benefited greatly from this conference and am so appreciative to have been included in its presentation today. i will certainly recommend it to others in need of additional resources to deal with these pressing issues."
"There were many different aspects I found useful in this conference. First of all, I really appreciated all of the information about characteristics of bullies and those being bullied. I also appreciated receiving useful tools and activities to use with my students in the classroom. Finally, I found useful the opportunity to discuss with other teachers character building programs they use in their school. I really enjoyed the PowerPoint presentation to aid in understanding and ability to take notes. Also, I appreciated the quiz questions to aid in discussion. I thought the speaker was great. I especially liked how the speaker did not put pressure on people to participate if they didn't feel comfortable doing so."
"The do's and don'ts of bullying were helpful. The speaker's background in mental health added to the dynamic of bullying discussions. There was some good ideas and techniques introduced - This was great! The conference was good, laidback and informal. I liked the conversational-based format as opposed to lecture-based. The speaker was friendly, experienced, educated in topic but also brings mental health background which was a great addition."
"The conference was very good - low cost of registration allowed for us to bring a team. The conference helped tremendously with characteristics of bullies and victims."
"Relaxed and comfortable format regarding asking questions as we went along. Interesting and informative. I enjoyed this conference. Best conference I have been to in a long time."
