Using the Truest Hearts of Your Students… in Your Classroom and in School
Olweus Bullying Prevention Program has had high success rates in reducing bullying in schools. It is based on empowering the bystanders. Truest Heart Teams can facilitated by the teacher following the presentations, or teachers can follow up on the conversations once it is started by a facilitator.
In a bullying situation, the Target (we purposely do not call them victims because we want to avoid that mindset) perceives bystanders to be part of the Bully’s ‘crowd.’ They do not know whether they are an Ally, or an Adversary.
