No Labels: Years 7-8

A bullying prevention program like no other, a great complement to your current practice or way to start the conversation with young people.

The details

No Labels: a bullying prevention program

Taking a three-pronged approach, this workshop identifies the drivers of bullying behaviour and empowers all involved to manage, support and practice positive help-seeking.

This is an interactive session delivered by a qualified facilitator including evidence-based educational content on bullying behaviours and strategies for managing these behaviours.

Digital tools are used in this program to engage formative assessment and allow the facilitator to drive discussion to the experience in the room.

By the end of this session participants will:

  • Understand the prevalence of bullying
  • Understand the “types” of bullying behaviour
  • Increase understanding of what drives bullying behaviour
  • Develop strategies to cope with bullying behaviour directed at you
  • Increase empowerment of bystanders
  • Develop bystander intervention strategies
  • Increase awareness of bullying traits

This program is mapped to the Australian Curriculum

Addressing bulling behaviours and empowering youth action

This is our most recent program with 45 sessions planned to be delivered in year one from August 2018. Overall the program performs highly with a 100% recommendation rate by both hosts (Teachers) and participants (youth).

During this program we utilise a digital formative assessment tool allowing us to better understand the cohort and their experiences. Of participants, 69% identified they had previously participated in bullying behaviours at the end of the session. An increase of 20% from the beginning of the session.

Importantly, 76% felt more confident implementing strategies to address bullying. With 30% of those feeling “Very Confident”.

What people have to say about the program

  • “I probably should re-evaluate how I interact with people. And I should check in with people, just to see about the casual teasing and whether it is ok with them or not…”
