BULLYING PREVENTION FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, AND MORE

The WITS® group of programs brings together schools, families and community members to help elementary school children learn effective strategies on how to deal with bullying and peer victimization.

The WITS Programs have been formerly evaluated in three peer-reviewed longitudinal studies. The programs show positive effects in reducing aggression and improving social responsibility (healthy peer relationships) in elementary school children in Grades 1 to 6.

The WITS Programs were developed and evaluated in a collaboration between Dr. Bonnie Leadbeater at the University of Victoria and the Rock Solid Foundation of BC. Started in 1998, programs are now in every province and territory in over 1,300 schools in Canada and abroad. WITS Programs and other bullying prevention initiatives are delivered by the WITS Programs Foundation, a nonprofit society and registered Canadian Charity.
