Boys on Bullying
"This program helps boys examine and break down male stereotypes that can contribute to bullying and isolation. It shows boys and girls the importance of acknowledging their feelings and talking with someone supportive. These are essential steps in building healthy relationships with other males, girls, and women." Bernice T. Humphrey, National Program Department, Girls Incorporated
"Bullying often damages boys in ways they can't express. Boys on Bullying gives words to our experiences and feelings. It needs to be seen by every boy and girl and their parents."
Tom Klaus, MS, President and Lead Trainer, Legacy Resource Group
"The thoughtful real life stories told in the videos can open up a deeply meaningful dialogue between young people, parents, educators and/or clergy to help young people deal effectively with their experiences and strengthen their future resiliency. They will help teens think about and make wise choices and help adults better understand how to reach out to support young people." Catherine Steiner-Adair, Ed.D., Harvard Medical School
"The vignettes in both Boys on Bulling and The Power of Girls: Inside and Out are true to life and the messages are positive. Vital issues of concern to teenagers are presented in a dramatic, compelling format. Matters addressed include peer conflicts, the need for peer acceptance and approval, sexuality, substance abuse, eating disorders, coping with catastrophic illness and bereavement and family relationships. The videos are valuable for both single gender and mixed counseling groups as well as health education and psychology classes." Inge S. Ortmeyer, LCSW
"This rare video [Boys on Bullying] takes a glimpse into the mind of the teenage male ... Five teenagers talk about the difficulties of being a teenage male and how they overcame adversity, finding their strength from inside. We use this video related to discussions on communication and masculinity with community groups." Wise Guys, Adolescent Pregnancy and STI Prevention Program for Young Men
