Dealing with Bullying and Other forms of Relational Aggression:
As a direct result of her daughter, Alana’s very difficult and traumatic experiences as a target of peer bullying, Kristine wrote/designed an anti-bullying program for children, “Be Friendship Focused”, teaching life-skills that counter-act relational aggression, that is filled with character building, self-empowering exercises and strategies. She and her daughter created the “A-Z Power Cards” a character building, thought provoking card deck that engages individuals or groups to begin a conversation that shifts negative perspectives and creates an more positive outlook. Both her book and cards are found on Amazon and published by Youthlight Inc.. Kristine has promoted her anti-bullying/self-empowerment program to numerous audiences at national. statewide, and local venues. During her term as a school psychologist, Kristine voluntarily promoted her anti-bullying program as a group leader for after school programs for five years.
