The purpose of this study is to analyze teachers' and other education professionals' needs and knowledge when dealing with bullying situations. Data collection was carried out in two different sessions of the Bullying 101 One-Day Institute at Boise State University, and the participants were educational professionals from several elementary and middle schools. Qualitative analysis of session artifacts revealed that participants had a basic understanding of bullying. Some participants were interested in being change agents when it comes to addressing bullying problems. However, they currently lack self-confidence and appropriate resources to overcome their fears and lack of self-efficacy when intervening.
