Bullying and Cyberbullying
Nowadays, bullying is a frequent threat to the physical and mental integrity of our students, especially during teenager years.
This type of school violence is evidenced through a set of aggressive, intentional and repetitive behaviors, individual or collective initiative of students, addressed to one or several other students. The adolescent (or child) is subject to insults, jokes, ridicule, vexatious attitudes, negative nicknames, etc.
On top of this, cyber bullying has come to amplify this serious issue, through social networks and other technological means.
Today, the vast majority of children and young people have access to the Internet at home, have a computer, tablet or smartphones and are constantly online. Without the monitoring and information of parents and teachers, children become more vulnerable in an extremely complex and dangerous world. Cyber safety and prevention mechanisms can be important tools to reduce the occurrence of these social phenomena.
Objectives: sensitize teachers about the potential risks and impacts of such actions on the psychological and physical health of young students. This course also aims to train teachers in the prevention, detection and action against threats of this nature, always trying to share and disseminate good practices. Bullying & Cyberbullying can be considerably reduced, and ideally prevented, dissuading this culture among children and adolescents and implementing official mechanisms for monitoring these issues, whenever necessary.
