The 'No More Harm' National Conference last Monday and Tuesday was a great success.
Some 200 delegates were stimulated by presentations regarding bullying in schools and the workplace. Speakers included government representatives and small business. I particularly enjoyed two workshops, one from the ex-teacher creator of Stymie, that offers an anonymous resource for students to share concerns about bullying, and another from the creators of Rebooting Education, that offers hands-on creative program for staff and students about emotional literacy. Other impactful presentations were about the impact of the Bystander Effect - there are some pretty sobering statistics in that regard.
I was honoured to be one of only three presenters to be chosen by ABC Radio Queensland for an interview.
My interviewer was Kelly Higgins-Devine, and she was clearly intrigued by my talk topic, 'Let's Bully On Purpose In Schools'. Kelly gave me plenty of opportunity to describe the universal laws that uphold my proposal, and to outline in some detail the strategy I have in mind. I'd like to salute my inspirations and mentors, Behavioural Specialist Dr John Demartini and Psychologist Ken Pierce, who is also co-author of The Dance of Bullying, a book that has played a significant role in developing my thinking in this area.
You can listen to the interview here.
And tomorrow I speak with someone who heard the interview and is interested in bringing my program into the school where she works! If you'd like more information, just go to the free offers on the right hand side of this page. ->>>>
