Positive Approach Against Bullying
"No Blame Approach"
From Roots to Results
"Bullying Poem" by Nho Doubt
Fist punch.
Foot crunch.
Hand hit.
Mouth spit.
Eye swells.
Can’t see.
Let me be.
Rips my homework.
Steals my money.
Grabs my lunch.
Thinks it’s funny.
I won’t tell, I swear I won’t.
Please don’t do that. I said “Don’t!”
Sticks and stones may break my bones …
… but names can really hurt.

a blustering, quarrelsome, overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people. (Dictionary.com)

to act the bully towards; intimidate; domineer. (Dictionary.com)

when a person uses IT to embarrass, harass, intimidate, threaten, or otherwise cause harm to individuals targeted for such abuse. (McQuade 2)
Through the doors.
Up the stairs.
Face is bloody.
No one cares.
In the washroom.
Clean up the mess.
I’ll be safe
Until … recess.

What do bullies look like?

According to Dr. Joel Haber, “Bullies may be popular, smart, confident, and socially adept. However…most bullies tend to share several of the following characteristics” (Hirsch and Lowen 7):

• “They lack empathy or self-control and need skill building and mentoring”

• “They experience conduct problems”

• “They feel the drive to be popular”

• “They exhibit delinquency and intolerance for others”

• “They experience violent contexts at home and/or in their community”
Taking Action!

Interesting Fact:
Originally bully meant “sweetheart” back in the 1530s, coming from the Dutch word “boel” which meant “lover; brother,” an element of a Middle Dutch word “broeder” or “brother;” however, the meaning deteriorated by the 1700s and eventually became a more negative term (Dictionary.com).

Yes, I'm bouncing back from a state of sadness and gloom.

I can't allow this sad state of mind to linger and loom.

No one, especially a kid like me, should be made to feel this way.

I'm very unhappy because I am bullied almost every day.

I've decided I'm bouncing back to the good old days when my life was full of nothing
but lots of fun.

So, those of you who've been bullying me on line and at school, got a news flash for you,
I'm bouncing back! The days of you bullying me are over and done.

Better yet, though it may not be easy at first, you might try real hard ending you[r] bullying
ways. Why not switch to a more harmonious track.

Because lots of kids I know who have been bullied, just like me, are real quickly going to
start bouncing back!

More Results:
Dr. Ken Rigby, a leading bullying expert of Australia, suggests 5 methods of intervention against bullying in lieu of traditional methods :
Strengthen the victim
: train the victim to cope and act more assertive.
: students work with a trained teacher or peer-mediator to resolve the dispute.
Restorative practice
: bullies reflect on their behavior.
Support group method
or 'No blame approach.'
5. The
method of shared concern
: bullies are interviewed individually to "gain their cooperation in improving the victim's situation." The victim is interviewed and later is invited to join the group to bring about a solution.

A Bully:
Where R U???
When Being Bullied...
Developed by George Robinson and Barbara Maines
Positive Results Because:
Focuses on how the victim feels and not on what happened or who did it.
Causes the bully and their supporters to think about how their behavior impacts the victim.
Forces the bystanders to be involved in helping find a solution.
The group is asked to help and the teacher "makes it clear that it is up to them--it is their process" (Sullivan 217).
"Non confrontational" approach (Sullivan 217).
No one is going to be blamed for anything that has happened.

All in all, the "participants are give the opportunity to empathize with the victim, the bully perhaps for the first time" (Sullivan 218).
