She is a nationally certified school psychologist, licensed psychologist, fellow of the American Psychological Association, and member of NASP’s School Safety and Crisis Response Committee. Dr. Nickerson’s research focuses on preventing and intervening with school crises, violence, and bullying, as well as the critical role of schools, parents, and peers in promoting social-emotional strengths of children and adolescents.
Bullying is an issue of concern for individual perpetrators and victims, as well as the peer group, family, school, and larger society. This workshop will describe the forms of bullying that youth engage in, the factors that contribute to it, and the short- and long-term outcomes associated with bullying. The focus will be on an evidence-based framework for preventing and intervening with bullying in schools. Throughout the presentation, videos and practical resources will be highlighted that practitioners can use to prevent and intervene with bullying and cyberbullying.
