Learn basic principals on how to move from "administrator" to "coach" to best support your child through the teen years.

Full Esteem Ahead Workshops facilitated by Kathy Masarie

    Teasing * Name-Calling * Gossip * Exclusion * Silent Treatment

    Full and half day workshops are held in Portland, Oregon each year, or your organization can host the half-day conference in your community. Both workshops deliver an overview of the research, precipitating factors, a framework for the all-school approach and a common approach to an "incident" of bullying.

Full day workshop includes several breakout sessions:

  • All School Approach: essential ingredients, successes and pitfalls of instilling long-term change in school climate in a school

  • Mediating an Aggression Incident: how can you get to the bottom of the incident and remain respectful of all parties involved

  • Programs that Work: explore the best programs to augment your all-school approach

  • Safe Havens for Boys: all children benefit from respect, being heard and having 'safe havens," places they can be who they are without fear of rejection, disapproval or judgment

  • Safe Havens for Girls: empowerment groups for girls can be an effective way to for girls to "get to the bottom" of hurting each other and how to stop.

  • Bibliotherapy: using children's literature can be a very effective way to instill empathy (and to teach many other skills)

  • Tribes: Building community in the classroom

  • Tools for Parents: what are some of the best ways to get parents involved in changing school climate

  • Non-violent Communication: based on Marshall Rosenberg's work, learn about the core needs we all have that drive all of our behavior, including bullying.
