About the conference

Students from the Research Club for Peer Relations and Bullying OLWEUS are pleased to invite any interested parties to attend OLWEUS Days. This three-day event will offer lectures by acclaimed researchers from all over the world, specializing in the topic of bullying, such as Professor Ellen deLara, Professor Faye Mischna, Professor Jacek Pyżalski, and Małgorzata Wójcik, Ph.D., and an Anti-Bullying Support Lab, i.e. a workshops for parents and teachers, which we have called . Moreover, during the conference, we will present the results of students' research on bullying. Attendees will also have an opportunity to hear a lecture by Szymon Wójcik, Ph.D., from the Empowering Children Foundation (a Polish non-governmental organization, which provides comprehensive support to children and guardians of children experiencing violence and sexual abuse).

OWEUS Days is a cross-faculty event as the members of the OLWEUS Research Club hail from three different campuses of SWPS University, including: Warsaw, Wrocław, and Katowice.

The conference is in a hybrid format. On April 11, 2022, we will connect guests and speakers gathered at our Katowice campus, at the Faculty of Psychology in Katowice with those joining us online. We hope that parents and teachers will also participate in OLWEUS Days as they are the fundamental link to effective anti-bullying interventions. We would like the parents and teachers not only to participate in the workshop but also to express their opinions during one of the segments.

During the conference, we will focus on the following topics:

  • Prevention of peer violence
  • Where and when does violence start?
  • Who are the perpetrators of violence? Who can help perpetrators change their behavior and how?
  • How can we help children who experience violence?
  • The role of adults in the face of bullying
  • Cyberbullying

Anti-Bullying Support Lab - workshop

Learn how to deal with bullying and its consequences. Should adults intervene when children "tease" each other, or should children resolve their problems on their own? How do you know when it's no longer a joke? During the workshop, you will discover the origins and types of bullying. You will also learn how to act if this problem affects your pupils.

Anti-Bullying Support Lab will be conducted by the members of the OLWEUS Research Club, developed under the supervision of Małgorzata Wójcik, Ph.D. The workshop is addressed to anyone who wants to broaden their knowledge, get to know the latest research results on peer violence, and develop new skills.

Passionate about research

The leaders of the workshop are active members of the Bullying and Parenting research team, which researches parents' and guardians' perceptions of peer violence. They will share their knowledge and demonstrate its practical applications.

It is a two-part workshop. The first part will be focused on studying theories of bullying, while the second part will be devoted to the tools that help us deal with this phenomenon.

During the workshop, you will learn:

  • What is bullying? Examples of behavior, who may become a victim and who may become a perpetrator. What is the scale of the problem?
  • What actions contribute to and protect from bullying
  • What are the effects of bullying on children, and are the direct victims the only ones affected by it
  • How to effectively reduce peer violence and minimize the risk of its occurrence
  • How to talk to children experiencing bullying
  • how to support children who have been bullied, and how to help aggressors change their behavior .

The workshop is addressed to parents, teachers, educators, and people who work at schools, parenting centers, or other places where groups of children/adolescents interact with each other. The workshop is open to registered participants who. The number of participants is limited, and applications are processed on a first come, first served basis.

For online workshops, please ensure you have a computer, a laptop, or a tablet with a microphone, camera and internet access. Mobile phones are not recommended as they make it difficult to participate in activities that require collaboration.
