Title:
Harassment, Sexual Harassment and Youth
Topic:
Harassment and bullying, including cyber bullying, among youth has serious emotional and academic consequences. Teach youth about healthy interactions and legal responsibilities.
Summary:
Harassment and bullying, including cyber bullying, among youth often has serious emotional and academic consequences. Victims need to learn that such behaviours are condemned under human rights law and perpetrators need to know that their actions can get them into serious trouble, including arrest by the Police. Youth need to learn about healthy interactions and legal responsibilities and to help to create a safe and inclusive school environment. We present activities, a video and strategies to address this educational, social and legal problem. The video, "Respectful Me, Respectful You", focuses on the law dealing with discrimination and harassment in Alberta and contains scenarios for discussion. As bullying and cyber bullying are forms of harassment, these issues are also covered.
