    Learn how to redirect, guide, and invite leadership, cooperation, and peacefulness in challenging situations where bullying behavior is often displayed. Instead of focusing on punishment and zero tolerance policies which often reinforce a power struggle, see how strategies from The Virtues

    Oh come on...what is the name calling at Legiislature and Common Council meetings? Maybe change should come from the top down.
    A bully has to shout louder and longer, take a look at your elected officials...good roll models...
    Maybe the Mayors office could sponser workshops on anti-bullying techniques and attend them.
