Faculty to Help Provide Affordable Bully Prevention Training The Global Alliance for Preventing Relational Aggression

The Global Alliance for Preventing Relational Aggression (GAPRA) is excited to announce three new faculty members who will help provide bully prevention training to schools and youth organizations. Christopher Burgess, Brenda Nixon and Sue Scheff will share their expertise in parenting and cyberbullying for GAPRA training activities alongside the organization’s co-founders, Blair Wagner and Jane Balvanz.

The mission of GAPRA is to deliver “Hope and Help for Bullies, Targets and Bystanders of Emotional Bullying.” Relational aggression, a.k.a. emotional bullying, is often the precursor to violence among children and has been linked to suicides. Annual membership in GAPRA offers schools and youth organizations affordable training for all staff members, volunteers, group leaders and parents.

In order to introduce membership to schools and youth organizations, GAPRA is inviting everyone to two free informational telephone calls on Wednesday, June 15, 2011 at 3:30 p.m. central time and June 22 at 3:30 p.m. central. Educators, parents and volunteers can register for the Sneak Preview and Q&A calls and submit their questions about GAPRA at: www.gapraconnect.com. The calls will be recorded, and the audio recordings are free to anyone who registers.


The Global Alliance for Preventing Relational Aggression equips schools and youth organizations with training, tools and support to reduce emotional bullying. The GAPRA co-founders also developed When Girls Hurt Girls®, an award-winning series of CDs, educational guides and other products, to empower girls in grades K-8 to solve their own friendship problems.
