M.O.V.E (Mind Over Violence Everywhere)
M.O.V.E. is a series of youth-directed workshops that uses art, improvisational theatre, sports, music and group work to deal with themes of violence prevention. Participants develop skills in critical thinking, communication, and peer mediation. Using a variety of engaging techniques, the program stresses rights and responsibilities, assertiveness training, and community relations. The energy, experiences and creative thinking of young people has provided the momentum for this dynamic program. Together, youth and community members are “M.O.V.E.ing” to prevent violence.

Anti-bullying: Best practices
CPHA's Assessment Toolkit for Bullying, Harassment and Peer Relations at School provides a standard way to measure the nature and prevalence of school peer relationship problems, standards for quality programs, and a common set of tools to assess the impact of school-based programs. From a public health perspective, it provides an overview of what works and what doesn’t, foundations for best practice standards, and outlines the core school components. CPHA’s toolkit includes tips for students, parents, teachers and administrators in the form of a handout and checklist that can be posted on the fridge at home, in the student’s desk and on the chalkboard at school.
