Bullies to Buddies
Bullies to Buddies takes a basic psychological approach of which anyone can easily learn. With this program, people learn how to respond to bullies in ways which will peacefully deter the bullying. By having a child learn skills to deter bullying, they become more resilient, independent and emotionally mature, whereas having an adult always intervene on their behalf does not give them life-long skills that they can take into adulthood. I work in a school system in which all of our counselors were trained in this program and are reporting effectiveness.
