The College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions' Institute for Translational Research and the Hartford Public Schools – in conjunction with The Ceceilyn Miller Institute for Leadership and Diversity in America – will sponsor the first New England Anti-Bullying Conference on Friday, Dec. 2. 

The conference will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Harry Jack Gray Center.

Building on Connecticut Public Act 11-232, an Act Concerning the Strengthening of School Bullying Laws, the conference will serve as a venue to gather the most knowledgeable scholars and practitioners on the topic of bullying in the states of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

In addition to raising awareness and providing information about bullying, the conference will focus on evidence-based strategies and solutions for preventing bullying and building safe, caring school communities. The conference welcomes the participation of educators, school psychologists, social workers, and others who work with youth.

The conference website provides detailed information about the schedule for the day, the presenters, and registration procedures.
