Reporting incidents to an adult is the top recommendation for youth victims facing bullying. At the same time, victims need to develop strategies to use when they are facing their offenders: counter aggression and making a safety plan. This paper presents design considerations for a conversational system being a training center for a victim to learn and try such strategies. We first detail what is bullying and existing preventive measures. We then detail specific features of such a conversational system and we define a set of functionalities and dialog design considerations required to ensure compliance with the preceding features. We close with the presentation of a simple illustrative implementation.
