3.1 BULLYING | GET RESPECT
How to build respectful relationships and avoid bullying
Open your student’s eyes to the powerful and misunderstood concept of respect.
One of Dr Justin Coulson’s most popular student talks, this session entertains students as they examine how they personally show respect and disrespect. It reveals how their respect earns them more respect, while their disrespect leads to a loss of popularity and opportunity.
With real-life examples of mistakes and heroic decisions, students will relate to – and be enthralled by – this engaging. They’ll also learn four key strategies to becoming more respectful starting now. In co-educational schools, this presentation is often best in single-sex settings.
3.2 BULLYING UNCOVERED | A WALK IN SOMEONE ELSE’S SHOES
How empathy can change your life
Show students that there is a better way to live life – with respect and kindness.
One of the essential elements of respectful relationships is empathy. It’s vital that kids understand the impact of their actions on others; that they are able to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes”.
This presentation takes students carefully into the cyberworld of hate and bullying, and into the lives of those who have been tragically hurt by bullying, to show students just how much damage someone can do without even realising it.
3.3 MASTERCLASS | THE MASCULINITY MASTERCLASS
Where we question everything about what it means to be a real man
Help your male students understand the real-life urgent need for more respect.
Respect transcends gender. However… the vast majority of crime – particularly violent crime and sexual crime – is committed by males. And females are disproportionately victims.
Ironically, boys are often oblivious to the realities of life for girls. They have no concept of all the things females do to ‘stay safe’ while out, particularly at night.
This session helps male students appreciate the role they play in being wise, kind, and respectful to women and girls – while still celebrating them for the wise, kind, respectful – and strong – men they can become. A gentle, uplifting, and important reminder (with a valuable take-home assignment) for every young man.
In co-education schools, this presentation is best in single-sex settings. There is a corresponding version of this presentation for females in which they explore and explain their feelings of safety, and the ways they feel more – or less – disrespected. Female presentations should occur first.
