“Given the dramatic increase in bullying that our children have endured, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare is proud to help our local schools fight all forms of harassment and bullying. The innovative curriculum developed by Chase Wilson Education is just the forum to prevent and eradicate bullying,” said Greg Smith, Director, Regulatory Affairs and the Leader of GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare's Community Outreach Team.
The curriculum was developed and written by Chase Wilson Education’s Director of Educational Programs, Andrew Yeager, a NJ School Psychologist and Student Assistance Coordinator, who lectures extensively and conducts trainings on bullying and adolescent issues throughout the country.
Student Assistance Coordinators Aimee Doyle (Parsippany High School), Vanessa Morgenthaler (Madison High School), Jennifer Kenny (Roxbury High School), and Patricia Colvin (Morris Knolls High School) will receive their respective school’s curriculum materials at a comprehensive bullying prevention workshop hosted by Chase Wilson Education and conducted by Yeager on November 13, 2012 in Bergen County.
“The mission of Chase Wilson Education is to educate, affect and change,” said Brian Morello, Chase Wilson Education’s Director of Development, “By offering educator training and student programs, we’re able to provide a foundation of character, tolerance, and empathy. Our anti-bullying curriculum is dedicated to safeguarding children to ensure intimidation and harassment are not part of their school experience.”
Based on academic research and clinical experience, Building Blocks enables teachers in a variety of disciplines to educate students on the nature and risks of harassment, intimidation and bullying (HIB) and enables school counselors to assess, intervene, monitor and reduce HIB incidents.
