Event Details

Bullying. It’s physically harmful, socially isolating and psychologically damaging, affecting the mental health & wellbeing of 1 in 5 Aussie kids.

Whilst face-to-face bullying is widely recognised, cyberbullying poses broader challenges that requires an integrated approach when implementing effective interventions.

Join Professor Phillip Slee, who’ll discuss how a Flinders University initiative is providing new insights into the effective implementation of anti-bullying programs, supporting schools across South Australia and the globe address the issue. Highlights include:

  • How bullying and mental health are inter-related
  • Why we need evidence-based school and community programs to address the issue
  • The associated economic and academic costs
  • Why governments need an evidence-based policy to address the issue
  • How an anti-bullying intervention called the P.E.A.C.E. pack is producing positive outcomes nationally and internationally.

Concluding the lecture will be a panel discussion moderated by Flinders University, Professor Mike Kyrios, Vice President & Executive Dean, College of Education, Psychology and Social Work:

  • Professor Phillip Slee, Flinders University
  • Trinh Mai, Department of Education
  • Tony Mahar, Student Wellbeing Counsellor, Brighton Secondary College
