The existing body of research on bullying in older children suggests that the roots begin early. Early educators need to be able to identify and address the antecedents of bullying before these behaviors become organized. This session will provide background information about how to identify the precursors of bullying, and help you consider your role in mitigating these behaviors. In this session, you will learn:

  • the developmental trajectory to bullying behavior;
  • theories about social and environmental contributors to bullying;
  • promising strategies and models designed to prevent bullying;
  • suggestions for policies and classroom strategies to address “mean” behavior and aggression in early childhood; and
  • resources for further research and implementation.
