School Resource Officers Help Reduce Student Altercations, Suspensions

Indiana School Resource Officers Help Reduce Student Altercations, Suspensions In Some Schools.

The Chicago Tribune (3/6) reports that school resource officers in Indiana, in addition to their protective function, are increasingly asked to serve as “a sounding board, counselor, role model and conflict resolver.” SROs’ state-mandated training and contracts with school administrators outlining specifically when and how they should intervene in conflicts have helped produce positive changes in some Indiana schools, helping to reduce altercations and suspensions.

Bullying does more long-term mental health harm than abuse, study says

Bullying does more long-term mental health harm than abuse, study says | School Discipline and Safety | Scoop.it

The long-term effects of being bullied by other kids are worse than being abused by an adult, new research shows

Long-Term Effects Of Being Bullied By Other Kids May Be Worse Than Abuse By Adults.

The Los Angeles Times (4/29, Kaplan) reports that a study published online April 28 in The Lancet Psychiatry suggests that “the long-term effects of being bullied by other kids are worse than being abused by an adult.” The study found at “among a large group of children in England, those who were bullied were 60% more likely to have mental health problems as adults than were those who suffered physical, emotional or sexual abuse.” And, among a big group of youngsters in the US, “the risk of mental health problems was nearly four times greater for victims of bullying than for victims of child abuse.” Reuters (4/29, Rapaport) reports that the research was also presented at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies.

        HealthDay (4/29, Dallas) reports that kids “who were bullied by their peers were about five times more likely to develop anxiety compared to those who were mistreated by their parents or other adults.” Children “who were bullied were also nearly twice as likely to self-harm and have more symptoms of depression at 18 as those who had been mistreated by adults, the study found.”

Relationships in leadership include listening to students and building a culture where student voice is important.  That means ALL students, not just the governing board or student leaders.  Here is a good example.

While suspension might settle some tensions and be an immediate response to an issue, it rarely does anything to improve relationships in the school, especially those harmed in the actions that caused the suspension in the first place.  Take a look at this for an alternative.

Adults, and I mean 'teachers,' engage in it. What if we began there? I felt bullied by one administrator. I doubt he even realizes what he did was wrong. It is second nature to adults because they have done it so long.

Researchers say teaching empathy to students can help reduce bullying | School Discipline and Safety | Scoop.it

 Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have learned that teaching students civility and empathy early on can help prevent incidences of bullying.

They have learned it through the application of the nationally recognized “Courage to Care” bullying prevention program created by UNH researchers and educators and unveiled in 2011.

More than 60 middle schools nationwide use the program, and more and more teachers participate in a three-day leadership training course on the program at the Browne Center each year.

Now, future educators can also learn how to teach the program in a new course offered through UNH’s graduate education program titled “The Courage to Care: Teaching Empathy in the Classroom.”

Brittany Hunter's curator insight, January 17, 2014 12:57 PM

I think teaching students empathy is a good thing. Bullying in the United States is becoming a really big thing all over the country; especially in middle schools. I think that when students learn what empathy is, and how they can relate to how other students feel in certain situations or when they are bullied, it can help to prevent bullying. I think that schools and universities need to be able to take other actions other than disciplinary actions, and teaching them empathy is a very good way to help abolish bullying.
