Our programs provide a proactive solution to an essential school program in anti-bullying education. By encouraging:
These characteristics are combined with the tools to help younger students respond to bullying in a realistic way.
With a framework of positive psychology our program takes students through a day in the life of a child, like them, highlighting both good and bad experiences communicating the emotions of all parties. Using the concept of “How Full is Your Bucket©” [Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer] students are offered a common language that staff and parents can also adopt in daily conversations. The metaphor of a bucket helps to communicate our vulnerabilities and the need for positive encouragement and support for us all to contribute at our best.
In our interactive session, children receive rewards, recognition and praise for filling others’ wellbeing buckets and so filling their own through good deeds, kindness, positive behaviours and thinking of others. They have the chance to see and understand the way bullying, negativity and hurtful words and actions impact others and themselves.
Discussing real situations children face such as: a new child starting at school, others not including you in their game, and not being rewarded for something you did, offer a tangible link between the concepts and our children’s daily lives in schools.
We also have wellbeing programs for staff, read more about them here.

“Our school engaged with Kathryn in her motivational and inspiring resilience and bullying prevention workshops. Immediately we noticed a positive shift in our students’ resilience and understanding of their emotional intelligence. After Kathryn’s staff workshops our staff were motivated to implement positive strategies in their classrooms and across our school environment to support our students resilience and understanding on how their actions can affect others and themselves. We engaged Kathryn to deliver workshops for our parents which has supported our community to have a common language and understanding on how to support our students’ emotional intelligence. I can’t recommend Turning Point Consulting high enough to make a positive, immediate and inspiring impact for your school community.”
