Researchers Recommend the WITS Bullying Prevention Program

A team of researchers at Dalhousie University reviewed the effectiveness of seven popular bullying prevention programs by delivering the strategies as a toolkit to school boards across Canada. From the analysis, WITS (walk away, ignore, talk it out, and seek help) was recommended for having the best effects at a lower cost, and also demonstrating long-term benefits. In comparison to WITS, the other six programs showed a costly training process and time-consuming curriculum, with very small effects.

The WITS Programs were developed by the Rock Solid Foundation, with the leadership of Dr. Bonnie Leadbeater, a PREVNet researcher and professor of psychology at the University of Victoria. WITS has since been used in over 600 schools in Canada and the United States.
