The U.S. Department of Education (USED) has released a free, two-part training toolkit designed to reduce incidents of bullying.

The toolkit was developed by the Safe and Supportive Schools Technical Assistance Center, supported by USED’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students, in collaboration with the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers.

Module 1 consists of step-by-step instructions, including a preparation guide and trainer’s outline, for conducting workshops with teachers, educators and school personnel who work with students in a school environment. Module 2 provides state-of-the-art information on how to build a supportive classroom climate. Research shows that classrooms that have strong relationships and are respectful of diversity have less bullying.
