TOPEKA (From KDHE) -- The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is sponsoring a free workshop provided by Lien Przybylski from the Committee for Children on the Steps to Respect Program. The Workshop will include an overview of the curriculum, intensive training on some of the pieces of the program, strategies form Kansas schools implementing the curriculum and an opportunity to network with other schools in Kansas implementing the Steps to Respect Program.

In an effort to address the problem of bullying and build capacity in Kansas schools, KDHE’s Sexual Violence Prevention and Education (SVPE) program contracted with 16 schools across Kansas to implement evidence-based, comprehensive bullying prevention program. The Steps to Respect (STR) program addresses bullying from a social ecological perspective and includes a manual with easy to follow scripted lessons for teachers, requiring very little preparation time, and includes a parent component.
