  • SUPPORT GROUP METHOD OF INTERVENTION

    Support Group Method  The Support Group Method (SGM) of Bullying Intervention does not replace, but complements a school’s anti-bullying policy and code of conduct discipline matrix. The SGM bullying intervention is an easily utilized tool that can be embedded into your school-wide efforts in a sustainable way. Incorporate SGM into school safety teams or have it used by individuals such as school counselors, peer counseling teachers, administrators, or before/after school care workers.

    The success of any intervention method relies on effective training, fidelity of process, school-wide integration, documentation, and evaluation. So if your school is interested in being trained on SGM, watch the SGM Instructional video and contact us for further information.
