Abuse Prevention: Setting Boundaries
A webinar for Heads of School, Administrative Leaders, and Trustees
- Becky Biggs, Director of Professional Development, AISNE
- Rahel Bayar, CEO, The Bayar Group
Establishing boundary guidelines in educational settings can be difficult. In an era of increased scrutiny on these issues, it is essential to learn how you can use boundaries as a tool to both protect students and identify grooming and “red flag behavior.”
Walk through an innovative way to think about abuse prevention and attain a roadmap for how to enhance school policies to ensure you and your school meet a best-practices standard for physical, emotional, behavioral, and social media and electronic communication boundaries.
Effective abuse prevention should never be about instilling fear, nor be a one-size-fits-all, “check the box” approach.
This session will integrate an important understanding of concerning behaviors with steps your school may take to create and maintain boundaries to ensure your community is safe.
In this session attendees will:
- Think critically about appropriate boundaries, both physical, emotional, and social media/electronic between students and faculty, and how effective boundaries are your best tool for abuse prevention and identifying grooming behavior.
- Think strategically about your own school policies and identify how your faculty can still cultivate bonds with students while still keeping everyone safe.
- Learn how storytelling can help you convey the “why” behind these boundaries and ensure your entire school community is empowered to prevent abuse.
This will be an interactive session with questions and discussion woven throughout.
