Mediation Center Staff Trained in Bullying Prevention

Bonnie Allen, family program manager, completed the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program (OBPP) training in December, 2012. The Olweus program is the most researched and best-known bullying prevention program available today. With more than thirty-five years of research and successful implementation all over the world, this whole-school program has been proven to prevent or reduce bullying throughout a school setting. Bonnie joined more than 35 others in the program, to become Olweus provisionally certified trainers. Providing Olweus Bullying Prevention Program training is part of the Mediation Center’s Anti-Bullying Initiative that will include an Anti-Bullying Walkathon on the Walkway Over the Hudson on April 27 and an Anti-Bullying Youth Summit in November, 2013.
