To help teachers and school administrators deal with issues of bullying on campus, Neumann University will host a workshop entitled School Safety: Solutions to Cliques, Truancy and Bullying on March 22 at Franklin Commons in Phoenixville. The program runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. with presenter Dale Yeager, a nationally recognized school safety expert, who works with schools and government agencies across the country and overseas on safety issues.
The workshop focuses on problem solving in the resolution and prevention of aggressive cliques, truancy (a major cause of bullying) and policies that encourage violent behavior. Yeager will cover topics such as assessing a school district’s safety problems, classroom aggression, gender bias in the discipline of students, truancy as the root of school safety problems, and negative behavior cliques.

His research on youth violence has been published in the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin and the book Profiling Violent Crimes by Dr. Robert Holmes. He has served on the development committee for the school security and safety administration master’s degree program at Fairleigh Dickinson University and has lectured at many colleges throughout
He is currently an instructor for the criminal justice program at Neumann University and CEO of SERAPH, a firm that provides training and consulting services to more than 26,000 U.S. schools.
