Presented by Marlene Seltzer, MD and Katharyn Barron
Bullying poses a significant public health challenge and healthcare providers are often on the front lines to respond. Bullying is associated with both short and long term adverse health outcomes for youth exposed in any role. This webinar will cover essentials for healthcare providers including definitions, roles, associated health outcomes, screening, and resources including OK2SAY. OK2SAY is a confidential way for students to report anything that threatens their safety or the safety of others. Since program inception, about 1/3 of the more than 8,000 tips are about bullying or cyberbullying.
