Guide Published To Challenge Homophobic & Biphobic Bullying

The Executive Director of EACH has written a guide to challenge homophobic and biphobic bullying.

This vital teachers’ guide to challenging homophobic and biphobic bullying offers unique insights to address the issue at its core. Laying out clear advice on how to recognise, stop and prevent it, readers are given strategies to work with its perpetrators, bystanders and targets.

Written by an expert in the field, this is a vital guide for primary and secondary school teachers and leaders who want to remove prejudice, embrace LGBT+ diversity and inclusion and improve the mental health and well being of students and staff.

Based upon the work of the UK’s leading and award-winning LGBT+ anti-bullying charity Educational Action Challenging Homophobia (EACH) this book additionally explores why young people are too often reluctant to report these forms of bullying; the increasing role of the online environment and the profound impacts bullying can have well into adulthood.

The Guide is written by Jonathan Charlesworth who is EACH’s Executive Director with over 30 years’ experience in consultancy, training delivery and resource creation on LGBT+ matters. In 2019 he co-developed the Welsh Government’s anti-bullying statutory guidance for schools.

Lauren Seager-Smith FRSA, CEO of Kidscape is quoted ” This is an essential read for any school leader who is serious about tackling homophobic and biphobic bullying – and that should be all school leaders! It provides straightforward, practical advice and will make sure you are meeting your legal and moral obligations to keep children safe.”

EACH is a registered charity working closely with the Health, Crown Prosecution, Police and Education Services. It was voted Charity of the Year 2018-19 by the Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation.
