Quotes from the forum

"The conference was expertly co-ordinated. The presentations were excellent, as were the opportunities to meet and talk to the contributors."

Participant, WABF 2019

”The opportunity to immerse myself in a supportive, collaborative climate of researchers and practitioners who share a common goal. I feel so motivated to work harder on the cause of reducing bullying."

Participant, WABF 2019

”The differing approaches to the same problem provide a considerable amount of insight. One or two of the presentations were nothing short of mind-blowing.”
