Bullying Think Tank hosted by Bullying Research Network
28 Jul 2017
The Bullying Research Network (BRNET) is hosting its seventh annual Think Tank July 27 and 28 in Seattle, Washington. Sue Swearer, Willa Cather Professor of Educational Psychology in the College of Education and Human Sciences, is co-director of BRNET and helped found the international organization. Housed in CEHS, BRNET’s purpose is to promote and assist international collaboration among bullying and peer victimization researchers. The Think Tank is rotated among member institutions each year and was held in Lincoln last year. Committee for Children and the University of Washington are hosting this year’s Think Tank.
The 2017 Think Tank is focused on middle and high school-aged students and translational research in cyberbullying. Attendees are participating in research presentations, small group discussions, panel discussions and other activities.
“BRNET is a veritable 'who’s who' in bullying prevention and intervention research,” said Swearer. “This is an important international initiative that CEHS has supported and promoted for 12 years.”
BRNET has over 190 national and international members, representing 20 different countries. A monthly e-newsletter that is emailed to over 200 individuals around the globe.
