Student bullying and exclusion are perennial problems that affect nearly every school. Most adult responses fail to prevent these behaviors, and punishment generally makes the situation worse. Unresolved bullying consumes educator time, compromises academic performance, embroils schools in costly litigation and harms the lives of thousands of young people every year.
No Bully developed Solution Team® and Solution Coaching™ as non-punitive alternatives for educators and counselors seeking a new approach. Research shows that these two interventions stop student bullying in about 90% of cases, making them some of the most effective anti-bullying interventions ever.
Participants at this one-day workshop will learn
- How to lead a team of students through all the stages of a Solution Team® to solve the bullying of one of their peers.
This workshop is offered jointly by New Roads School and No Bully, a respected San Francisco based 501(c)(3) non-profit that has helped many California independent and public schools create bully-free learning communities that reflect their values.
