The International Bullying Prevention Association

The International Bullying Prevention Association (IBPA) is a member-based organization including individuals and organizations, researchers, teachers, counselors, administrators, community agency staff, school board members, law enforcement personnel, health providers, students, mental health providers and parents. IBPA works to take research-based best practices into countries, schools and communities. An annual conference is held in the US to bring together members and others working against bullying.

Friends is a member of IBPA and has participated in and lectured at their conferences. Friends and IBPA also cooperates through other conferences. In April 2016, Friends arranges a cyberbullying conference in Sweden supported by IBPA.
