This workshop will include a comprehensive review of school-based bullying and harassment prevention and intervention efforts with a particular focus on gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. We will discuss the prevalence of bullying and harassment experienced by GLBTQ students, along with the psychological and educational outcomes associated with these negative experiences. Learn about the various frameworks and approaches used by school-based bullying prevention programs, especially the anti-harassment programs that show the most promise to be effective in supporting GLBTQ students.
