All students deserve a safe environment to learn and a supportive place to form friendships. Depression, social anxiety, loneliness, chronic absenteeism, and academic decline can all be experienced by victims of bullying. As such, sufficient bullying prevention, response, and remediation practices need to be established in our classrooms and schools to ensure all students are safe.

The mission of the 3rd Annual Iowa Anti-Bullying Symposium is to inform educators, counselors, and administrators about effective bullying remediation and intervention strategies to create safer and more welcoming school environments for all students. Starting with the basics of bullying behavior, the conference will dive into a how-to of implementing bullying interventions by looking at currently established programs throughout the state. Experts in the field will share their insights in advocating for all students, including those from marginalized and underrepresented populations, and the first-hand experiences utilizing best practices in their schools.

The 3nd Annual Iowa Anti-Bullying Symposium will take place on October 4, 2019, at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines.
