academicviolenceAcademic violence and bullying in higher education is a serious and prevalent issue that is important for counselors to understand because it has an impact on individuals (e.g., students, staff, faculty, administrators) and their families that can rise to different levels of emotional, behavioral disorders (e.g., depression, anxiety, PTSD).

This workshop provides a framework as well as realistic hope and practical approaches (e.g., survival handbooks for victims and bystanders). Throughout the workshop, case studies, exercises, and appendices will assist the participant in applying the model to their counseling practice.
