Brooks Gibbs is an award winning social skills educator and author of SQUABBLES™ The Game Of Conflict Resolution.
Over 2,500 schools have hired him to speak allowing him to reach 2 million students face-to-face. His viral videos have amassed more than 200 million views worldwide.
Devin Daniel Kurzdorfer was a sophomore at Kenmore West High School when 2 months before summer vacation he tragically took his own life.
He was diagnosed with a high functioning form of autism and ADHD at an early age. He suffered as a victim of cyberbullying.
Devin's family has partnered with Brooks Gibbs to create an assembly presentation that teaches all students (especially those with autism) how to build up their emotional resilience to bullying, cyberbullying, and other aggressive behavior.
A Global School Assembly is a world-wide video broadcast event that is free for schools to participate in. There are three simple steps:
In this school assembly presentation, Brooks Gibbs teaches students two basic principles:
Most youth aggression is non-criminal and consists of name calling, social exclusion, rumors, etc. These behaviors are inevitable between siblings at home and peers at school. Despite the pettiness of these behaviors, they can do tremendous emotional harm to a student. Brooks teaches students how to protect their emotions from the effects of these behaviors through emotional resilience.
He also communicates the genius of The Golden Rule. This social instruction teaches students how to make friends and also manage their perceived enemies. The Golden Rule takes advantage of the law of reciprocity, and as students learn to treat others as friends, this positive behavior becomes the social norm.
His 45-50 minute high-energy keynote is full of excellent information and can be applied to any non-criminal aggression at home, on campus, or online. Brooks, of course, encourages students to seek adult intervention when they feel like they are in danger or cannot handle the aggression on their own.
There are several ways to show the school assembly video to your students.
Yes. We first ask that parents share this website with their local school and have them register for the Global School Assembly. If your school is not participating, you can still show the video to your child at home as well as enjoy the teacher/parent training video.
