Bullying and Health

The Research Exchange Group on Bullying and Health was founded in September 2013. The group comprises researchers, faculty, educators, students, practitioners, and policy makers who gather monthly to discuss applied health research on issues related to bullying and health in Newfoundland and Labrador, whether focussed on the school system, the workplace, the post-secondary experience, health professional bullying or issues of leadership and restorative justice.

  • to create research links;
  • to identify funding opportunities and research gaps;
  • to work towards developing greater overall capacity to conduct research on bullying and health; and
  • to promote evidence to inform decisions about public policy on bullying and health in Newfoundland and Labrador

Upcoming Meetings

May 6, 2019 | 12:30pm NST: ​Dr. Brett Holfeld, Assistant Professor, Psychology, Grenfell Campus, Memorial University: My program of research addresses the impact of technology on the social and emotional development of children, adolescents, and young adults. More specifically, I am interested in the longitudinal effects of risk and protective factors (measured at both individual and contextual levels) on cyber bullying and victimization, and on behavioural and mental health problems. I am always willing to talk about my research and I am open to new ideas that could make for an interesting project.
