One of the first and most popular anti-bullying videos, Gum in my Hair is back with a comprehensive update. Gum in my Hair Version 2.0 includes new research, all new interviews and new strategies for tackling the age-old problem of bullying in schools. Like the original, which is being used in thousands of schools across North America and Europe, Gum in my Hair v 2.0 is energetic, entertaining, and - most importantly - effective. Gum in my Hair v 2.0 incorporates new research that emphasizes: - The role of the bystander in fueling or defusing a bullying incident; - Empathy, and how teaching it can prevent bullying in the hallways; - Why it's important to focus on "bullying" rather than just the bully; - And the fact that having one or two friends or allies significantly reduces a child's chances of being bullied. Co-hosted by sociologist Pepper Schwartz, Ph.D. and Leslie Walker, M.D., experts in the field of adolescent behavior and bullying, Gum in my Hair v 2.0 is a must-have and must-watch for every elementary and middle-school anti-bullying program.
