Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

ROOM 715

Bullying is one of the most common complaints of kids who come to counseling or therapy. Most professionals, though, don't have an effective way of helping them. Furthermore, the research shows that the programs and policies that require schools to protect kids from bullying are by-and-large ineffective. This workshop will teach a quick and highly effective method for teaching kids why they are bullied and how make it stop without anyone else’s help. It is fun for both the client and the professional, and is especially well suited to those who use drama as a modality. The method can be used with individual clients as well as with groups and in school assemblies. Bullying happens not only among kids in school, but throughout the lifetime, and most of all at home. The same method can be used to help almost all clients with interpersonal problems, including marital conflict. Workplace bullying has also become a growing concern, and you will learn how to use role-playing to teach adults to turn hostility into harmony at work.
