Group curriculum to decrease or strop bullying behaviors for middle and high school students

The aim of this project is to create a program that is geared toward providing the bully guidance and support in learning how to change his or her aggressive behaviors. Often, programs that exist have been negatively based (i.e. suspending the bully without providing rehabilitation opportunities) and mainly disciplinary. The goal is to disregard punitive measures and afford the bully rehabilitation that is entirely optimistic. An eight-week psychoeducational group curriculum for the students who bully will be created. This program may be implemented in conjunction with an existing bullying program or independently. The eight-week group curriculum will offer beneficial resources and knowledge to persuade the bully to stop hurting others.
