PREVNet is a national network of Canadian researchers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and governments committed to stop bullying. Bullyingis wrong and hurtful. Every child and youth has the right to be safe and free from involvement in bullying. It affects children and youth who are bullied, those who bully others, and those who know it is going on.
The WITS Programs bring together schools, families and communities to help elementary school children deal with bullying and peer victimization and to help adults learn how to respond effectively to children’s requests for help. WITS has two parts: the WITS Primary Program for children in Kindergarten to Grade 3 and the WITS LEADS Program for students in Grades 4 to 6.
The WITS Primary Program teaches children in Kindergarten to Grade 3 to make safe and positive choices when faced with peer conflict. The WITS acronym – Walk away, Ignore, Talk it out, and Seek help – provides a common language that children and the adults in their environments can use to talk about and respond to peer victimization.
WITS LEADS is a more grown-up version of WITS designed for students in Grades 4 to 6. The LEADS Program teaches five problem-solving strategies to help children deal with conflict and keep safe: Look and listen, Explore points of view, Act, Did it work? and Seek help.
