Safe at School: Bullying Prevention and Utah Law

A talk by Bo(nnie) Owens (Alternating Pronouns: she, they, he)
Safe at School Coordinator, Planned Parenthood Association of Utah

Planned Parenthood of Utah's Safe at School program is an anti-harassment/bully-prevention seminar for educators, future educators, and others who work with youth, OR for those interested in learning more about issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) students and their peers. In this practical training, educators explore how Utah law enables us and limits us when it comes to creating safe classrooms and schools for our students. We will discuss everything from student and parent experiences to cultural attitudes towards bullying; from educational disparities affecting LGBTQ students to useful bullying intervention strategies. Learning Objectives - Participants are able to distinguish between developmentally appropriate behavior and bullying behavior as outlined in Utah law. - Participants learn about the status of gender- and sexuality-minority students in the United States and the effects of victimization on this diverse population as well as students in general. - Participants understand Utah laws with regards to bullying, harassment, and LGBTQ topics in schools and how they impact educators, LGBTQ students, and their families. - Participants gain practical strategies to respond to bullying or otherwise oppressive behavior in their classrooms, schools, or other educative settings.
