Dealing with Bullying in Schools

Positive Solutions Bullying Resilience Program

At the request of schools, our new Positive Solutions Bullying Resilience Program is developed and implemented, tailored to address specific issues for schools.

The content of the program has been extensively researched and is based on academic material – ranging from government and non government agencies to schools and various experts – and practical approaches. As a result, an innovative concept has been developed as it integrates alternative proven schools of thought into practical program.The program is curriculum aligned and available in age appropriate formats.

The Positive Solutions Bullying Resilience Program consists of:

  • Three x two period sessions for students
  • One session for parent
  • One session for teachers

A wide range of material has been sourced to produce this valuable interactive program. The work of Dr Ken Rigby, internationally recognised Australian authority on bullying, has contributed to the project, enhanced by material on positive education by Dr Martin Seligman and Dr Barbara Frederickson. This, combined with our own extensive experience and Victim, Thriver – The Journey, has assisted in the production of the Positive Solutions Program.

The sessions for parents and teachers explore the importance of each role, and the collaborative approach required for a whole of community approach to the issue of bullying.
