The mission of the International Bullying Prevention Association is to support and enhance quality research based bullying prevention principles and best practices in order to achieve a safe school climate, healthy work environment, good citizenship and civic responsibility.
It has taken more than three decades of academic study of bullying behaviors, public revelations and attention to the true consequences for those who bully and those who are bullied and world-wide media coverage of incidents of unspeakable cruelty, suicide, and homicide, to bring educators, students, law enforcement, health care workers, and parents together in a global effort to do something about it. Bullying hurts and for those involved, the hurt can last a lifetime. As a world, we are learning that bullying behavior can be the root of serious violent situations in our schools. Many countries have adopted policies and procedures for Safe Schools.
We are well aware that there is nothing new about bullying behaviors. What is new is that bullying prevention has become recognized as a worthy topic of study and best practices in research are available. The International Bullying Prevention Association welcomes you to join us as we work together to take research-based best practices into our countries, schools and communities, to make our world a more welcoming and safer place for all.
