Olweus Bullying Survey
- Olweus Bullying Prevention Program is a classroom program proven to reduce bullying behavior
- This survey allows respondents to share their experiences with being bullied or being a bully
- The program is designed specifically for elementary, middle, and junior high schools (ages 5 to 15)
The Olweus Bullying Prevention Program is the nation’s most well researched and best known bullying prevention program. It’s a comprehensive tool that uses annual surveys for the most recent statistics, curriculum for the classroom, and resources and training that is easy to implement. This program has proven results in reduction in bullying behavior, reduced rates of alcohol and drug abuse, and increased academic results. This program is even better when implemented under the guidance of a trained Olweus representative. Ongoing training is provided to educators who enroll in this program. This training helps those teachers learn how to effectively manage bullying and even prevent it from happening.
There is a cost associated with the implementation of this program, but many schools actually find that it eventually saves them money in several areas: cutting down on teaching time that’s lost due to dealing with bullying (and staff burnout), protecting the school from any legal action stemming from bullying, and dealing with the physical and emotional effects of bullying on both sides.
To help their research develop furthers (and to measure the success of their program), Olweus has introduces an anonymous online survey opportunity. To login to this survey, you will need a username and password. Once logged in, you will answer questions about experiences being bullied and about being a bully yourself. Your answers here are not attached to any of your personal information, and will only be used for research purposes.
