NOT IN MY SCHOOL: Anti-Bullying Program helps to nurture safe school and social environments through empathy and character development by equipping students with skills to increase emotional and social intelligence.

Each year approximately 30% of students worldwide are the target of bullying. If these kids were adults, their behavior would be called assault and punishable by the law.

Bullying is different from just playing around or peer conflict. It occurs when a student, or group of students, repeatedly hurt or humiliate another student or group of students.  Bullying and harassment often cause lasting physical and mental harm, marginalize diverse students and negatively impact the entire school culture.

NOT IN MY SCHOOL: Anti-Bullying Program is designed to enhance and improve student relations and nurture a culture of safety and positive learning for young people to develop.

Our goals are:

  1. decrease existing bullying problems
  2. prevent new bullying problems
  3. enhance student relations with peers, teachers, and the school through emotional and social learning strategies

What is social and emotional learning (SEL)?
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

What does emotional and social intelligence look like?
Emotional and social intelligence can increase in each of the four core areas:

  • Self-awareness. Students become increasingly aware of their emotions, interests and values, and accurately assess their strengths and capacities. They have a solid sense of self-esteem and a strong belief in their ability to create a positive future.
  • Self-management. Students develop a greater mastery over their thoughts, emotions, impulses, and motivation.
  • Social-awareness. Students increase in empathy towards others, as well as a recognition of the differences in others. They are also able to identify supportive relationships and resources.
  • Relationship-management.  Students develop conflict resolution skills, how to set and maintain boundaries, and problem solve relationship challenges, as well as when and how to ask for help.

As a results, students will have a greater sense of belonging and connection to their peers, teachers, school, and community, therefore reducing the risk of aggressive or maladaptive behaviors, such as; bullying, self-injury, unhealthy sexual behaviors, and substance abuse.
