Using LiveKind™LiveKind™ offers users four package options at ascending price points. All package options stimulate conversation about issues that kids need to air out and include live or PDF versions of facilitator training. Open, honest discussion stimulates development of empathy, creates new understanding and acceptance of others for who they really are and what they are really feeling. Each package can be used when needed to quell a specific situation and/or used regularly to reinforce LiveKind™ messages.
LiveKind™ training for Teachers and Group LeadersLiveKind™ has developed a unique facilitation model called “The Circle of Conversation,” to be used to guide conversations among participants during a LiveKind™ session. Our unique three-hour teacher training is designed to teach this facilitation model and then to allow ample time for participants to both experience and practice it with their peers, using LiveKind™ videos as the conversation starters. We recommend live teacher training but a PDF version of the training is available and comes with LiveKind™ Online. The training also covers some bullying prevention groundwork: 1) defining the key players in a bullying situation, 2) modeling and explaining the ground rules that have been developed for the program, 3) distinguishing between types of peer-to-peer aggression and 4) talking about the role that teachers, administrators and group leaders play in setting a tone and modeling the culture of kindness in a school, program, or organization.
LiveKind™ OnlineLiveKind™ Online provides users access to a library of LiveKind™ videos that are updated at least annually. The videos demonstrate the four roles of bullying situations (target, aggressor, bystander, and ally), the types of bullying (verbal, physical, emotional, cyber-bullying, exclusion) and some specific “hot spot” topics. The videos depict a variety of age-appropriate content and present a diverse group of children.
