Freedom From Bullying. Courage & Character for Life

International speaker Paul Coughlin, creator of Life’s a Movie—What’s Your Role?” educates and inspires all four “characters” in the “Theater of Bullying” to change their role, decreasing bullying, growing courage and bolstering character development, compassion, empowerment, and acceptance.

With humor, conviction and inspiration, Paul Coughlin teaches how history’s greatest leaders, including America’s noble Martin Luther King Jr., did more than know and feel that cruelty was wrong—they acted through their ability to show courage in the face of fear and uncertainty. It is this ability, Coughlin explains, that turns concerned Bystanders into Alongside Standers for children who are targets of bullying—especially physically and mentally challenged children, the most bullied group of kids in any school. They need a courageous Protector and Coughlin’s stirring presentation shows them how to become one.

This inspiring presentation helps targets avoid being targets in the future, shows kids who bully the dangerous path they are really on and what they need to do to change today, and even helps authority see through powerful myths about bullying, helping their school be the best it can be.

Bullying tells children that others don’t care. But they do—they just need enough courage to put their compassion into action, and this presentation shows them how, creating a safer, more creative and happier school in which to learn, work and play.
