Teach youth compassion, the only cure for bullying

by Ronald J. Coughlin – President, New Jersey Violence Prevention Institute


I have expressed concern about the anti-bullying efforts made by the state of New Jersey, specifically that the program didn’t involve any efforts to help the bully with his or her anger.

It is impossible to stop bullying without compassion training, which regulates anger and prevents future crime.


A recent study by the University of Texas

showed that anti-bullying programs

did not stop bullying.
