Learning Objectives

These are the exact points that Jeff will cover with your audience.


The Secret to Empowering Kids

1. Participants will learn how to play a unique, improvisational game that educates children in why they are bullied, and how to stop it immediately.

When participants infuse this game into their current prevention, intervention, and rehabilitation efforts, they will help students grow in emotional resilience, build empathy and kindness, and develop effective leadership skills.


Building Resilience

2. Participants will learn the top-ten socio-emotional resilience items that must be identified for a child to become truly emotionally resilient to bullying behaviors.

Each will learn how to apply the “Peace Sign Approach”, using a role-playing game to a child’s area of weakness, to build and promote emotional strength.


Understanding Social Aggression Through a Growth Mindset

3. Participants will learn a simplified definition of bullying/social aggression that allows them more clearly understand this complex issue, and how to respond to it more effectively.

Furthermore, they will learn how to keep a positive mindset that enables them to see the bullying problem as an educational opportunity for a student’s social and emotional growth.

The “Peace Sign Approach” to bullying is based on best practices including social and emotional learning, resilience education, and cognitive behavior therapy.

It is in harmony with Love & Logic, WhyTry Resilience Education, PBIS, Character Education, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Merrill’s Strong Kids, Bucket Fillers, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, The Four Agreements, The Golden Rule, and wisdom from the ages.

Professional Development &
Staff In-Service Training

As a youth treatment specialist, Jeff spent over a decade helping at-risk youth in schools, residential treatment, and counseling programs.  He truly understands the need for simple techniques that will work right away!  His training seminar teaches educators and mental health professionals the most effective ways to empower young people to solve social problems before they escalate.

Unlike programs that rely on school-wide systems and take significant time to implement, Jeff will teach you how to empower a those targeted by bullying in as little as 10 minutes.

These powerful techniques aid schools in conflict resolution by allowing teachers to teach, rather than spend their time investigating and enforcing.  Jeff’s training is full of laughter, audience participation, and role-playing of real-life scenarios.

(Duration: Choose a 60-min keynote, 90-min interactive, 3-hr interactive, or 6-hr/full day interactive training).
