PREVNet is leading one of the four communities of practice (Safe and Accepting Schools), which are aligned with the four key elements of Ontario’s well-being strategy. This newsletter addresses key language that is often misused in the media, by our leaders, in our everyday conversations, and in our schools. This issue explores the use of labels when talking about bullying, the role that educators play in promoting and modelling language related to bullying that supports healthy relationships; and the difference between bullying, aggression, and teasing.
