Bullying is an aggressive, repeated behavior that involves a person or persons intentionally harming another person or group physically and/or emotionally.
The Peace Center’s Bullying Prevention Resource Center can help schools, families, and police determine the best course of action necessary to help the victim/target deal with bystanders and address the bully’s behavior so the problem does not continue. The Peace Center has vast experience working with students, teachers, administrators, the DA’s office, police and the community to address this problem and is uniquely qualified to provide assistance.
- The Community: The Peace Center staff is trained and prepared to hold facilitated dialogues or, when appropriate, interventions and support between children and families who have been affected by a bullying incident.
- Schools: The Peace Center partnered with all thirteen school districts in Bucks County to help with bullying intervention and/or prevention by providing guidance in the form of suggested protocols, prevention efforts, problem-solving and intervention when needed.
- Outreach and Law Enforcement Education: The Peace Center works with police departments throughout the county to provide education and support helping officers effectively handle both the target and the offender in non-violent cases.
To educate, empower and support schools, families and police departments in addressing bullying in order to prevent violence, promote peaceful conflict resolution and foster safe, inclusive communities.
