|Peer Support Australia recognises that all members of the school community can play a role in reducing the incidence of harmful behaviours. Building on student’s capacity to prevent and respond to bullying and drawing on positive psychology principles such as fostering strengths, gratitude, respect and kindness in students helps develop protective factors and strengthens relationships across the school.
Strengthening Our Connections promotes a strengths based approach to reduce harmful behaviours and increase strategies to strengthen and repair relationships.

Strengthening Our Connections focuses on:
It is assumed that this module is not stand-alone in promoting pro-social behaviours or addressing bullying behaviours. This module is designed to support the review and development of active policies, procedures and initiatives put in place by individual schools. It is only with a coordinated and collaborative approach that safe and positive environments can be created to benefit everyone.
