Example Lesson from ABC Workbook

​​​The ABC style of teaching uses five complementary tools that build understanding and skills: Reading, Visualizing, Writing, Conversing, and Reflection. Our approach emphasizes what we call "The Bully Triangle" TM or TBT. 

The triangle is symbolic of the character roles of a bully situation; it consists of a victim, a bully, and a witness.  All three are                                                                             affected by the act of bullying.  We deepen the conversation about the bully experience and

about how to change this mindset from the three perspectives engaged in bullying.

These five tools are the backbone of this program that ensures its strength.  Our aim is to challenge people to change for the better by giving them to tools to do so. It’s the beginning — not the end.

​​​​​​ABC Curriculum

Acts of cruelty, intimidation, and violence among our young people are at an all-time high. While mitigating factors contribute to this problem, it is our mission to focus on the solutions.  Our goal is to empower those who are affected by the bully situation—to find ways to build a safer and more loving society for all.

ABC brings participants together in a 30-session workshop. This experience is often life-altering and allows participants to gain information and insight, rethink what has been learned in the sessions, and put it into application.

The ABC Workbook is broken into modules consisting of written lessons, group discussion questions, and
