3.1 BULLYING | FROM BULLYING TO RESPECT
Why bullying programs don’t work and what to do instead
Equip your teachers with powerful relationship principles and conflict resolution practices to manage bullying.
The world’s most popular bullying programs aren’t working. Bullying persists. Respect is still a challenge in schools everywhere.
While in theory the programs should work, in practice there are gaping holes and implementation challenges.
The aim of this session is simple: let’s take a look under the hood to see why bullying programs aren’t working, and then let’s discover what to do instead, using the best scientific research into relationships and motivation.
Justin unpacks the core differences between discipline and punishment to highlight where we are so often going wrong, and explains the Three E’s of Effective Discipline.
3.2 BULLYING UNCOVERED | 6 STEP BULLYING FRAMEWORK
Anti-bullying strategies that are proven to work
Build your staff’s capacity to create a culture of kindness – for any school environment.
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to bullying – that’s why formulaic programs don’t work.
However, there are proven principles based on empirical research that make a significant impact on a bullying culture in your school.
Based on ground-breaking insights from global bullying expert, Michele Borba, and Self- Determination Theory gurus, Richard Ryan and Ed Deci, this presentation walks educators through a comprehensive strategy that tackles bullying with compassion, courage, and consistency.
Teachers will learn how to effectively set and create rules; recognise bullying in all its forms; show kids how to report bullying by being upstanders rather than bystanders; respond to bullying with wisdom and discipline; and refuse disrespectful behaviour and replace it with positive, prosocial action.
This session provides real-world examples, and opportunities for feedback, conversation, and integration.
3.3 MASTERCLASS | THE VERY PERSONAL BUT QUITE LIFE-ALTERING RELATIONSHIPS MASTERCLASS
A whole new way of managing relationships
Teachers will come away with the ability to change their professional and personal relationships for the better in immediate and remarkable ways.
This session helps educators move to the very limits of their relationship skills and attitudes – and beyond.
Drawing on philosophical views of relationships (without getting too philosophical!), this hands-on, interactive presentation will stretch participants as they explore their personal and professional relationship decisions and conflicts in powerful, revealing, and life-altering ways.
This masterclass explores ideas related to Justin’s “vicious circle”, examines “ways of being”, and considers the lines we must cross in order for the best in us to speak to the best in others.
