The Resilience Approach to Making Friends, Managing Anger, and Stopping Bullying [video]

friends-2019068_640Brooks Gibbs is a social skills educator who teaches strategies for conflict resolution with a special emphasis on emotional resilience and the Golden Rule.

According to Gibbs, most youth aggression is non-criminal and consists of name calling, social exclusion, rumors, etc. These behaviors are inevitable between siblings at home and peers at school. Despite the pettiness of these behaviors, they can do tremendous emotional harm to a student.

Gibbs teaches students how to protect their emotions from the effects of these behaviors through emotional resilience.

The Golden Rule teaches students how to make friends and also manage their perceived enemies. It takes advantage of the law of reciprocity, and as students learn to treat others as friends, this positive behavior becomes the social norm.
