Healthy Visions believes all students are worthy of respect. Unfortunately, many students do not feel respected in their day-to-day life because of a culture of drama, bullying, and unproductive conflict. In this presentation, we teach students what communication looks like when it is healthy and productive, what it looks like when it isn’t. We encourage them to take appropriate action when they are being bullied or when they witness bullying. We do this by equipping them with information, strategies, and tools that help them to communicate more clearly, effectively, and with more assertiveness. After we have established a solid foundation, we discuss bullying and social drama: The different forms it may take (whether in the classroom or online), and appropriate ways to respond that will empower students and de-escalate unhealthy conflict and social drama. We inspire our students by reminding them that since they are all worthy of respect, bullying should not be the norm within their community. We remind them to be proactive; it is not enough to simply react to bullying. Students need to be empowered to create a culture of kindness, respect, and trust that fosters community and uproots bullying at the source.
