harassment and violence in the student population. Some Programs

progress as you go and FOLLOW-UP frequently so you can assess how the program
is doing. If you do not get the results you desire, TRY, WORK, RECORD

USA – Train the Trainer Institute
of the great numbers of invitations I receive to work with students, I
have found that it is even more effective to train people to do the work
that I do so that hundreds of thousands of students could be engaged and
empowered to talk about the issues of bullying. Consequently,
I have developed a Train the Trainer Training Institute and have trained
over three hundred people to work with students, educators, professionals,
and parents. People that I have trained are working in California, Florida,
Arizona, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina, Texas,
Louisiana and Mississippi.

we strive through lectures and events to educate our youth from 2nd
through 8th grade. They will be able to understand the concepts of why
bullying happens, and alternatives to take when it happens. We teach them
the misconceptions that are underlying to this problem in schools, and
other activities. Children that attend are actively involved with the presentation.
The events we schedule, are set up so that kids feel free to relax, and
talk if they wish. These events also are a great way for children to create
friends and recognize differences. Our goal is to reduce 95% of the bullying
happening in our area schools and activity centers. For more information

Laugh At Me" is a program designed for use with elementary
and middle school youth to help address the problems of bullying, ridiculing,
teasing and harassing that can occur in today's schools. The program was
developed by Educators for Social Responsibility, in collaboration with
Peter Yarrow, of Peter, Paul and Mary, who was deeply impacted by a song
of the same name by Steve Seskin.
Laugh At Me is a national initiative launched by Yarrow who has made
it his personal mission to reduce violence in America's schools.
initiative uses music, video and well-tested instructional activities to
help students recognize intolerance due to personal differences, understand
that differences are positive, develop compassion for others who are different
from themselves, and learn that teasing, name calling, exclusion and ridicule
are hurtful to others. Teachers are also provided strategies in helping
students develop new ways for resolving conflicts positively.

Hands Project – A 13-word pledge and a simple signed
purple cutout are all that's involved in The Hand’s Project.
participant takes this vow: “I will not use my hand or words
for hurting myself or others,” Next, the person traces the
outline of his or her hand on a piece of purple paper -- the color purple
stands for violence awareness -- cuts it out, signs it and hangs it on
a wall. It may sound simple, a little too simple, but the pledge
and the program seem to work, say those who have tried it. This pledge
has spread to more than 40 states in the United States and five countries.

Incredible Years Parents, Teachers, and Children Training Series has two
long-range goals. The first goal is to develop comprehensive treatment
programs for young children with early onset conduct problems. The second
goal is the development of cost-effective, community-based, universal prevention
programs that all families and teachers of young children can use to promote
social competence and to prevent children from developing conduct problems
in the first place.
the Interests of Families and Teachers
the Interests of Families and Teachers (LIFT) is a research-based intervention
program designed to prevent the development of aggressive and antisocial
behaviors in children within the elementary school setting (particularly
first graders and fifth graders).
is designed to decrease the likelihood of two major factors that put children
at risk for subsequent antisocial behavior and delinquency:
aggressive and other socially incompetent behaviors with teachers and peers
at school and
ineffective parenting, including inconsistent and inappropriate discipline
and lax supervision.

classroom-based child social skills training

Finds a Friend
by actual events, Mary Finds a Friend is a heartwarming story
about a fascinating friendship between a yearling moose, named Mary, and
a grandmother Welch Cob horse, named Little Bit.
Finds a Friend at the elementary level is the very best corrective
action tool available for the anti-bullying crusade. This methodology
attacks the root cause of the problem early on and precludes its growth.
Like any good parable, the story holds a powerful message, yet it is not
forced or offending, driving home the importance of compassion, friendship,
and caring about others.

Peaceful Schools Project
the prevalence of bullying, Stuart Twemlow, MD, a psychiatrist and international
authority on school and community violence from the world-renowned Menninger
Clinic, has been studying the causes and effects of bullying on individuals
and communities. From a three-year, ongoing study known as the Peaceful
Schools Project, Dr. Twemlow and other researchers at the psychiatric
center have devised a set of low-cost school violence prevention techniques
based on the rigors of scientific evaluation. Since so few programs develop
interventions relying on strict randomized, controlled studies, the Peaceful
Schools Project is believed to be the most ambitious, privately funded
study of its kind.
the ongoing Menninger studies, Dr. Twemlow and his colleagues have concluded
that bullying behavior, especially in schools, requires three participants:
a bully, a target and an observer or bystander. Take one role out of the
mix and bullying can be stymied. Involve the whole school in a comprehensive
antiviolence program and bullying may be virtually eliminated.
- SAVE is a student driven organization. Students learn about alternatives
to violence and practice what they learn through school and community service
projects. As they participate in SAVEactivities, students learn
crime prevention and conflict management skills and the virtues of good
citizenship, civility, and nonviolence.

and the broader community in addressing the problem of bullying in schools.
Building upon the unprecedented success of the Australian
of Us, the significantly expanded American program has commenced

and developing the scripts. They perform all the young roles in the dramatized
films, and work in supporting positions on the film crew. Every word
of dialogue is their own, and every detail approved by the students.
