Over the past decade, Dr. Swearer has developed and implemented a data-based decision-making model for responding to bullying among school-aged youth and has conducted staff trainings in elementary, middle, and high schools, with the goal of helping school personnel establish cost-effective and data-based strategies to reduce bullying behaviors.
Dr. Swearer has authored over 100 book chapters and articles on the topics of bullying, depression, and anxiety in school-aged youth. She is the co-author of Bullying Prevention and Intervention:
As a licensed psychologist, Dr. Swearer is a supervising psychologist in the Child and Adolescent Therapy Clinic at UNL and was the former Director of the Nebraska Internship Consortium in Professional Psychology. Her career has been devoted to the intersection of research and practice and she is the Chair of the Research Advisory Board for the Born This Way Foundation. Additionally, Dr. Swearer is the co-editor of “Bullying @ School and Online,” an e-publication on Education.com (http://www.education.com), designed to close the gap between research and practice.
Most recently, Dr. Swearer and UNL have partnered with Paul Mitchell Schools to create N-Lighten: a pioneering anti-bullying, self-empowerment curriculum focusing on both prevention and intervention. The curriculum will begin in the nationwide network of cosmetology schools and spread to neighboring high schools and beyond. The partnership will also create a lifelong learning community synergized around the relationship between service and research and a shared passion for self-empowerment, healthy relationships, and anti-bullying initiatives.
