Unlike large corporate offerings or non-research backed motivational speakers, my programs are designed to provide a start-to-finish platform for long-term management of bullying in the schools.
I start by defining what bullying is and how to differentiate it from teasing. I engage students through multimedia presentations, role-plays of real life situations, and work with them on coping skills and strategies for challenging social situations.
My programs have been tested with students, parents, and educators, and I never force feed my clients a cookie-cutter approach. I start by understanding your school’s unique problems, budgets, and resources and design a program that meets your needs. Each workshop provides takeaway strategies including exercises, research, and best practices for your program. Contact me today to talk about HIB workshops for your school.
