Bullying: The ONLY Answer to the Problem

Is peer aggression improving in our schools? NO. "Traditional attempts by schools to change bullies, or to teach them a lesson, are not only futile but actually make the problem worse." (Dr. Gordon Neufeld, Developmental Psychologist) What are we missing? What can we do? This 26-page resource explains why traditional approaches do not work and outlines a two-pronged approach that educators can use to get REAL results. It also includes free online multimedia resources, eBooks, and legal information, along with a bonus collection of online safety sites featuring simulations, games, strategies, video galleries, and some very cool tools.

Workshop by Donna Sawyer

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Is the problem of peer aggression improving in our schools? No. Dr. Gordon Neufeld explains, "Traditional attempts by schools to change bullies, or to 'teach them a lesson,' are not only futile but actually make the problem worse... When we lack insight into the underlying dynamics of bullying and perceive it to be nothing more than a behavior issue we miss the root of the problem." Workshop participants will investigate the various "pathologies" of peer aggression in order to understand the root of the problem and design more effective interventions.
