Bullying has been greatly misunderstood, and we, as adults, are generally misguided in the advice that we give to children about how to deal with bullying. Recent research offers new information and a basis for improved strategies to address this type of conflict.
Dr. Beverly Title’s Biography:
Co-Founder of reSolutionaries, Inc, Beverly was an international trainer, consultant and keynote speaker who worked throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and South America. As a public school educator for 21 years, Beverly specialized in alternative education and taught at every level from kindergarten through graduate school.
She developed the No-Bullying Program published by the Hazelden Institute and co-founded Teaching Peace and the Longmont Community Justice Partnership and received awards for leadership in restorative justice.
I was first introduced to the concepts of conflict resolution in schools by Dr. Title who taught a class for our school district. Her information was solid and very practical. With Beverly’s support, I was inspired to go further in teaching students these concepts and developed the Peace Place Program. Beverly is a highly regarded expert in the field of conflict resolution, and has been a mentor and guide when it come to conflict and bullying in the schools. She’s a wise woman with a wonderful heart!
Dr. Title deserves our highest praise for her work on bullying. She is a true expert, both on the academic side and the practical side. Her work is informed by research and guided by what she says she has ‘learned from the kids.’
I have observed Dr. Title’s work on bullying since she began in the 1980’s. What I find most significant is that she has helped countless numbers of educators, parents, and youth find a clear path to end bullying and establish self respect.
“Beverly and I have been colleagues for over 20 years. Meeting Beverly and having the opportunity to work professionally with her over the past 26 years, has been one of the smartest, most beneficial and impactful professional relationships I’ve made. Beverly is the person I turn to when I need professional advice on bullying. She knows evidence-based research and best practice approaches, and she gives solid, practical advice that staff members I supervise who work in our public schools can use in working with children and youth who are experiencing bullying."
