Session Summary 
Some children and young people are exposed to adversities that compromise their cognitive and emotional development. One of these adversities is bullying, it is considered a risk factor that provokes damages of different intensities and may last for long periods of time. To be protective, the school must become a consistent support network and build strategies to neutralize bullying situations. This can be effective by enabling students to confront, overcome and transform their difficulties expressing resilience, personal and group strengthening. Taking these ideas into account, a Bullying Intervention Programme based on Positive Psychology was developed in in a public school setting in Brazil. Named #NoBullying, the programme aimed to encourage students to become social actors and multipliers to prevent bullying. The basis of this positive intervention was the individual’s positive experiences and their traits or characteristics that could foster collective and subjective resilience, with final results of the well-being of communities at risk situations.
