Stories of Us: P3R (USA)Community Education Program
This self-contained film-based resource is the Community Education component of our Promoting Positive Peer Relationships (P3R) bullying prevention initiative in America.
“[The films are] so realistic that I felt at times I was reviewing a surveillance tape.”
Patti Kinney, National Association of Secondary School Principals (USA)
Videos and Extensive Facilitator’s Guide.
The Community Education Resource is intended for schools and community groups wishing to reach beyond the school to inform and engender constructive support in dealing with bullying.
Parents and family of Middle School students, and local community.
Parents, family and members of the local community may be the first to witness bullying or its consequences, or be the ones to whom students turn for help. Bullying is not limited to the school. With the emergence of various forms of cyber-bullying (using cell phones and the internet) it is becoming all the more important that parents and the broader community are well informed about the reality of bullying.
This resource combines the professional student films with expert interviews highlighting what happens and why, and providing guidance with addressing this complex problem. The aim is to help define and understand what is potentially happening for many of young people, and consider how they can help to create a safer and more supportive environment.
The text accompanying the videos provides instructions for conducting the session, and includes hand-outs for the audience with links to further information and support.
A preview of the Teacher’s Guide can be downloaded here as a PDF document.
A 4 minute preview of the film is available above on this page.
The Promoting Positive Peer Relationships (P3R) resources were produced by Readymade’s American subsidiary Stories of Us (USA) LLC, with support from the universities of California (UCSB), Illinois (UIUC) and Nebraska (UNL).
