Our Programs

Current Programs and their Goals

1. An early warning, online, student interview system. Our system utilizes eighteen individual questionnaires designed to investigate, discreetly and anonymously, the emotional well-being of all the students in a school.  It is comprised of approximately 300 questions that take a typical student about 30 minutes to complete.  The answers are then computer-scored automatically.  Our system has been designed to look at issues of depression, anxiety, loneliness, connectedness to school, bullying and cyber-bullying, peer victimization, bystander feelings, sleep, self-esteem and racial discrimination.  The goal of our system is to proactively identify students who may be having emotional difficulties and to bring help to them in a timely manner.

2. The self-help VideoBook program. Our VideoBook features five interactive missions that teach students strategies to help them deal with bullying.  During the missions (which they download off the internet), students view videos of their peers talking about being bullied, the emotions they experienced and what advice they now have to offer.  In addition, students view videos of experts discussing topics such as good nutrition (and how it affects our emotional and physical well-being) or how to improve the quality of their sleep.  Our VideoBook is fully interactive.  For example, there are thought-provoking questions to which students can respond directly in their VideoBook, they can interact with maps of their school, they can respond to tables by highlighting particular sections, they can save their VideoBook for future reference or even print out sections if they want.  The goal of our VideoBook is to empower students to solve their bullying problems using their own resources and abilities.

3. A data analysis and reports program for schools. Our reports program, based on our sophisticated database system, provides schools with aggregate data reports (no student names) that have been designed to help Principals better understand their own “School Climate”.  For example, a Principal can see, by grade, how many bystanders wish to be educated in skills that might help them reduce the incidence and severity of bullying in their school.  The goal of the reports program is to help schools, based on hard data, identify their strengths and weaknesses and to document improvements as new programs demonstrate positive impact.

Future Multi-Media Rich Programs that we hope to develop:

1.  A bystander education program

2.  A bully education program

3.  A teacher education program

4.  A community education program

5.  An academic research program that allows academics access to our database so as to further research into bullying.

6.  An advisory service (based on the Consumer Reports model) that offers reviews of the best anti-bullying programs available nationally so that schools can make educated program purchasing decisions.
