Dr. Danielle Quigley speaks to CBC Radio's All In A Day about the importance of science in bullying prevention programs

CBC Radio's All In a Day interviewed Dr. Danielle Quigley, PREVNet's post doctoral fellow to discuss the importance of research in bullying prevention programs.

Dr. Quigley raises important points including that 15% of existing programs make the problem worse. With only 1/3 of programs being effective, a full 2/3 are inneffective with some creating further problems.

Dr. Debra Pepler, PREVNet's Scientific Co-Director, Interviewed in The Vancouver Sun

Dr. Debra Pepler spoke to The Vancouver Sun about the importance of teaching empathy in school in bullying prevention. 

Excerpt:

"In our society, if a child has trouble in school, we give thme tutoring, we back them up. But if a kid lashes out or is highly anxious and withdrawn, we don't do that. We don't help children solve the much more complex social problems that they face. We exclude them, we take them out of class."
