Subject : In a Community, “All Behaviors Count:” Implementing the ABC Program in Community Settings
Detail : Do you need to be able to discuss bullying and social cruelty with young people in your programs? You can help people understand more about how to respond positively when confronted with meanness in this half-day workshop focusing on the Museum’s anti-bullying curriculum, “All Behaviors Count.” In this program, community leaders and others will learn how to implement this free modular program that examines the five forms of social cruelty: taunting, rumoring, exclusion, ganging up and bullying. This program examines the roles each of the five forms of social cruelty plays in both school life and in culture. Broadening the scope to include other behaviors beyond bullying is significantly different than approaching bullying as a singular behavior. In addition to teaching about these negative behaviors, this program also focuses on teaching how to respond to social cruelty in positive ways. These social resiliency skills – both intra-and inter-personal – mean that participants in the program will be prepared to address issues of social cruelty directly. In this session, participants will learn how to use examples from media and popular culture to widen the experiences they see and discuss. This program is appropriate for community program leaders who work with young people in grades K-12. The fee for this program is $20 per person, which includes workshop materials but not lunch. Registration is limited to 40 people, and must be received by April 28, 2014. To register online, visit
