Workshop Description:

Jodee Blanco, author of the seminal New York Times bestseller, Please Stop Laughing at Me… and multiple other books on bullying, will bring your audience inside the heart and mind of the bullied child, and help them to see the world through their compelling point of view. As the nation’s first survivor turned activist/expert, she will also share some of her most unforgettable experiences working deep inside the trenches of America’s schools for over two decades. Jodee provides a rare and illuminating perspective that only someone who was bullied herself and who holds hundreds of bullied students in her arms every day as they pour their hearts out to her, can understand.

Highlights of this class include: what you should never say to a bullied child and why; what you should say and do; The Three Tenants of Emotional Credibility in Communication and how to engage each to elicit truth from a student in crisis; how the bully and the victim are flipsides of the same coin and how to identify and assist both; the two types of bullying and why one is innocuous and the other dangerous; the two types of popular students and how to harness their influence to create a more inclusive atmosphere at school; the typical profile of the bullied child; how to intervene with a bullied child one-on-one; how to intervene with a group; why traditional punishment doesn’t always work and how to supplement it with a more intuitive alternative called Compassionate Discipline; how to spot the warning signs a victim may be suicidal or contemplating retaliation; where to turn for support; and how to work in partnership with parents on all sides.

She will also reveal deeply personal insights such as: the worst mistakes the adults in her life made and what she wishes they would have done differently; the most common complaints she hears from bullied students today, and what they want their teachers and parents to know but don’t have the courage to tell them.

Note: Jodee will integrate the most current Covid-related developments into this presentation including bullying awareness and prevention strategies for the socially distanced, hybrid and virtual classrooms among other insights specific to building classroom community, inclusion and social/emotional learning in the new and evolving post-Covid reality.

At the conclusion of this class, she will answer questions.

Learning Objectives:

(1) Identify specific characteristics of the two types of bullied students.

(2) Apply specific intervention steps that are from the child’s point of view.

(3) Describe the three tenants of emotional credibility in communication.
