StopBullying.gov, an initiative of the US Department of Education's Office of Safe and Healthy Students, has launched a new Spanish website: http://espanol.stopbullying.gov/.
Like the English-language version, the new site provides teachers, parents and community leaders with the resources they need to prevent bullying. It contains research and best practices on cyberbullying, prevention and response. In addition, a Spanish-language version of the Bullying Prevention Training Module is also available. These resources will help Latino stakeholders address bullying in their communities. Below are examples of the materials made available on the site:
- Training Module with Speaker Notes – a presentation with suggested talking points, including the latest research to help participants create an action plan for a community event.
- Training Module PowerPoint – a slide-by-slide presentation for use at a community event, workshop or town hall meeting.
- Community Action Toolkit - a supplemental guide, including tip sheets, a template event agenda, action planning matrix and feedback forms.
- Misdirections Packet – a Tip Sheet and a Spanish transcript of the Misdirections video featuring Dr. Catherine Bradshaw, a national expert in bullying prevention who discusses approaches to avoid in bullying prevention and response
