Start with my special report: What YOU Can DO About Bullying

We offer specific services to address bullying in both classrooms and the workplace.

  • Professional Development Series.
    • Safe & Bully-Free Classrooms & Safe & Bully-Free Workplaces are the two 4-session training series consisting of 16 – 24 contact hours. The outcomes of the learning experience includes:
      • Clear, working definitions of bullying, the types, its behaviors, the roles of individuals and systems, and the statistics.
      • Immediately applicable strategies, tools, and resources for all roles.
      • The opportunity to experience, practice, and integrate the strategies and tools.
    • Safe & Bully-Free Communities is a shorter version of the above series. The goals are to provide families, communities, and organizations with an overview of the definitions, tools, and strategies. How much opportunity there is for practice of the tools is determined by the time allotted. The experience is designed to be no less than  90 minutes (very little practice) and can be up to 3 hours (includes practice opportunities).
  • K2K Community Programs. This is a kid2kid model where youth are trained as trainers of younger peers in the tools and strategies needed to successfully mitigate bullying and encourage positive school culture. Click for more information.
