Take A Stand Prevention of Bullying School Program is now FREE!

The TAKE A STAND Program has been a critical part of changing the culture in schools throughout North America.

The Coalition for Children and author, Dr. Sherryll Kraizer, are pleased to be able to offer the program in its entirety for use throughout the world without charge.

As bullying is recognized in more and more countries for its devastating effects, many developing nations have requested access to the materials to develop culturally relevant adaptations.

The Classroom Program

To be redundant and make my point about what is good for children and families – please do not use any of the children’s materials without watching the video in its entirety, reading the Teacher Guide, and giving all parents an opportunity to watch the video and read the Parent Handbook

I’ve made the process of teaching the Take A Stand Program as easy as possible, the manual walks teachers through what to say, what responses to expect, what role-plays to use and how to follow up.  It covers all the common – and some not so common – concerns children express, with the accompanying explanations.

This guide, however, is only a tool.  Teachers should feel free to use the curriculum guide in a way that is consistent with their own style and comfort level and the needs of the children in their group.  Teachers should feel free to break the presentation down into smaller parts, adapt the role-plays to the community or change some of the language to make it more appropriate to the developmental level of the group.

Best Practice

The Program is most effective when the five sessions are presented about once a week.  This allows time for the children to utilize the skills and begin to see changes.

Because every group is different, you may cover more or less of the materials on any given day.  Feel free to move more quickly or slowly depending on the group you are working with.

Change over time is the goal, and the Program should be conducted on an annual basis.  This allows the children to learn new skills as they mature and keeps the concepts fresh for all age levels every year.
