School Anti-Bullying Program Yields Quick Results
Keys to Successful Bullying Prevention/Reduction
Dr. Haber's presentation was enlightening, helpful, AND entertaining.
Using humor, he was able to clearly demonstrate how we can all resort to bullying in our
daily lives and how we can learn to deflect the same. In doing so, he illustrated how we
can share these techniques for dealing with bullies with our children. He also explained
beautifully the various motivations that lead to bullying and the characteristics that inadvertently
encourage this behavior. Understanding the motivators and reinforcers of this negative behavior
is the best way to avert it, and we feel better equipped with this knowledge. The parents
and staff that were fortunate enough to hear Dr. Haber are now asking repeatedly if there
is any way to have him back, so that more parents and staff can benefit!

On behalf of our PTA, I would like to thank you for the wonderful
professional presentation on "Bullying". Your information was both insightful and
helpful to all of us, both parents and educators alike.
I wanted to send my sincere thanks for visiting Rye Neck Middle
School today. Your presentations were everything we were hoping for and more. The content
you touched on was perfect for what our Middle School and its parents needed. Your general
affable personality and your laid-back and interactive speaking style had everyone feeling
at ease with discussing this very important issue. We truly hope to work with you again
so that we can get your information and message out to more parents (and kids)!
