The Stronger Than You Know Conference is a professional development opportunity for counselors, teachers, educators, social workers and other youth-service providers. Our goal is to provide trauma-informed tools, strategies, and resources to address the unique challenges that youth face while growing up.

Topic: Bullying Prevention

Almost 30% of Oregon middle school students have been bullied at school in the last 30 days, according to the 2017 Oregon Healthy Teens Survey. And 59% of U.S. teens have been bullied or harassed online, according to the Pew Research Center. With the emergence of cyberbullying, intimidation doesn’t end in hallways. It’s now a 24/7 issue that impacts the social and educational well-being of students.
