Published research reveals a significant positive impact of this program on students’ levels of stress and their ability to deal with different forms of bullying.
Delivery of this course is flexible and can be taught to classroom-sized groups of students or used with individual students who are currently being victimised by bullying.
The course consists of 4 lessons that include four animated videos covering four elements
- Part 1. Bullying and its impact
- Part 2. Thinking makes it so (can be presented over two class periods)
- Part 3. Things to say and do
- Part 4. Coping in action
Each of the four parts contains discussion topics, activities and a list of materials needed for running the group activities.
This program can be incorporated into school timetables. Alternatively, one session can be developed with students being shown the complete animated video program supplemented by activities drawn from the material in the teacher’s guide.
