A few years ago – I was privilege to give a talk to the teachers at the Shri Ram Schools in New Delhi India. It was an amazing time. I decided to record the presentation and make it available to teachers.
The problem is that the most effective bullying prevention programs don’t help everyone. They help encourage kids to be “upstanders” but they don’t really do much to help kids who are dealing with a chronic bullying problem. Once bullying has become chronic, what the kids need now is to be taught how to get it to stop.

There is no one best way to stop bullying. What is needed is a comprehensive approach.
