The Bullying Prevention and Intervention in DC Educational Institutions training toolkit -- created in partnership with the youth research center Child Trends -- is a comprehensive package of guides, presentation slides, scenarios and self-assessments for schools or other entities to train their staff on how to prevent and respond to incidents of bullying.
