Resources in the MRC to support Bullying Prevention
BeCool teaches kids specific reflective thinking techniques to promote self-control, stop bullying and interrupt the tendency to impulsively act out. In the process of imagining the pros and cons of behaving HOT, COLD, or COOL and using optimistic self-talk, students become more self-aware and empathic to the feelings of others.
The BeCool Series teaching paradigm is based on Assertion Training. Your students will watch as their video peers hesitate and then model three different ways to respond to conflict: 1. Blowing up (HOT); 2. Giving up (COLD); 3. In Control (COOL). The negative consequences of the victim-like/passive response and the hot-head/aggressive response are then contrasted against positive outcomes of the assertive/COOL response.
