PREVENTING bullying among children is the subject of a Winthrop Professor’s internationally recognised research.

University of WA and Telethon Kids Institute Professor Donna Cross will present the latest strategies and innovative ways to prevent and reduce bullying at an upcoming free forum.

Prof Cross said the seminar would outline strategies developed from 12 years of ongoing research.

Commissioner for Children and Young People Jenni Perkins, who will co-ordinate the forum, said bullying was an issue in her conversations with children and young people across WA.

“Prof Cross is a WA Ambassador for children and young people and we are very fortunate to have her expertise at this forum,” Ms Perkins said.

“Her research is recognised worldwide and she is able to translate this work into practical strategies that help parents and those who work with children to identify when bullying is occurring and take appropriate steps to address it.”

The seminar will also include presentations from the President of the WA School Psychologists Association Eileen Kuruckchi and two young people involved in the Cyber Savvy research conducted in WA schools.

This free event will be held on October 27 from 7pm at the Churchlands Concert Hall. To book visit www.trybooking.com/IYYK
