PROGRAMS THAT WORK >

.

A good anti bullying program is essential for the prevention of bullying, harassment and violence in the student population.  Some Programs have only a short test period of implementation and others several years.  The Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, as an example, has been in use for over 20 years throughout the world. 
...
The most important thing is to TRY a program, WORK the program, RECORD your 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 and FOLLOW-UP again.  Do not give up – these are your kids.

"Don't 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. 
...
Don't Laugh At Me is a national initiative launched by Yarrow who has made it his personal mission to reduce violence in America's schools. 
...
The 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. 
...

The Hands Project – A 13-word pledge and a simple signed purple cutout are all that's involved in The Hand’s Project. 
...
A 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.
