Violence prevention in Educational Institutions: Guideline for pedagogical workers

7 September 2017

This guide is intended for managers and employees (teachers, psychologists, social sciences educators, etc.), general schools and institutions of secondary education. It provides information about the nature and causes of violence in education institutions, its types and consequences, and the parties involved.

The emphasis is given to gender-based violence. This guide offers practical advice and proposes organizational and educational measures, as well as response schemes for the management and staff of education institutions in order to address acts of violence and provide assistance to the victims. The guide is advisory in nature: it can be used as a background material for developing a national recommendation on the prevention of violence in an education institution.

Experts from the ministries of education, education institutions and public organizations of Eastern Europe and Central Asia, as well as the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) took part in discussions throughout the process of publication-writing.
