Lockridge holds an EdS in Curriculum and Instruction, an MS in Elementary Education, and a BA in History. She also homeschools her children.

After doing some research for a “conflict resolution” class project, I compiled a list of helpful resources for people suffering from different forms of aggression and bullying.

Can you recognize the symptoms of a child suffering from relational aggression and bullying? The enclosed resources are beneficial for parents and educators alike, and cover a variety of forms of aggression and bullying.

For ease of use, this list of resources is separated into sections such as Aggression, Bullying Cyber-Bullying and School Violence. While you may not have direct access to a local help center, for example, some organizations provide local group meetings, the websites offer great suggestions for how to handle bullying and what to do next. You may also be able to contact the center and ask for a suggested center in your area.

Most importantly of all, realize that bullying is wrong and you do not deserve it. Words DO hurt.

Aggression

The Center for Aggression Management trains people to identify people who are of a danger to others, and provides people pertinent materials pertaining to aggression management.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides information such as a sourcebook dealing with the best practices for dealing aggression and how to bring about violence prevention.

The Ohio Commission on Dispute Resolution & Conflict Management, established by the legislature, helps Ohioans resolve disputes stemming from aggression and bullying, through win-win situations.

The Virginia Conflict Resolution Center has assisted families, individuals and organizations in the Virginia area for more than 20 years. The organization provides conflict resolution services, certifications and training to help others assist with conflict resolution issues such as aggression and violence.

Bullying

Resolve Alberta, a division of The University of Calgary, has compiled a resource manual for school-based violence prevention programs. Although the information on their website is primarily geared towards girls and young women, many of the principles are applicable to anyone being bullied.

School Violence

Center for the Prevention of School Violence focuses on ensuring that schools and school functions are safe for every student to attend. It also reached beyond the school to work with members of the community who support the proper training of young people.

Conflict Resolution Education Connection gears the practical information on their website towards teachers and student teachers. The website offers information on topics such as school violence, classroom management and bullying.

The Visionary organization provides information on school violence and bullying, and helps teachers, parents and professionals resolve conflict safely. This resource also provides online courses and a list of suggested reading on the topics of conflict resolution.
