Grant Money Offered to Stop Gun Violence Problem

Worldview Publishing, Inc. is offering grant money to help solve a serious gun violence problem. Starting March 15th schools, juvenile justice and community youth programs will be awarded grant money for the Tough Choices program.

The Tough Choices™, beyond anger management program is a proven prevention program that stops the escalation of gun violence through an emotional health program that provides mentoring, monitoring and life/stress management skills. Kids desperately need a gripping and easy to implement, research based, emotional skills training program that can provide daily monitoring and mentoring.

The Tough Choices™ DVD lessons and worksheets provide a trusting space for kids to open up. This is to counteract today’s escalating isolation and violence. This proven prevention piece is required to provide opportunities to connect to kids and heal their anger, release grudges, and pay it forward through daily activities that teach these kids healthy coping skills. The layers of this holistic program heal the root causes of unchecked anger, bullying, suicide, gun violence, addictions and emotional isolation. Through a video driven curriculum, Tough Choices™ provides a unique healing piece, systematic skills training and a gripping wake-up call for the culture that needs to get emotionally connected.

Anyone can implement this plug and play DVD driven program which is in 1,000’s of middle schools, high schools, alternative schools, juvenile justice facilities, mental health hospitals, community programs, and private mental health practices. Tough Choices™ for ages 12 to adult, was also chosen as a pilot program for the national job corps. A preview of the curriculum kit contents, DVD’s, worksheets and clinical statistics can be found at: http://www.worldviewpub.com/why_effective.php

“Our youth need a program that will get their attention with plug and play DVD driven lessons and activities that an untrained adult can do easily! Kids need a safe place to talk and teachers need a consistent way to emotionally connect to them while teaching, modeling and monitoring healthy stress/life management skills,” says founder Dr Linda Hebert-Ford. “There are many pieces to the gun violence problem in our culture but the prevention piece needs to start right now.”

The digital age has created a revolution in communications and human interactions. With all of its promise it is unfortunately creating a social and emotional nightmare. Kids are becoming severely deficient in social/emotional skills and have few healthy role models. Parents’ increasing technological, financial and stress management needs leave little time to connect with their teens to discuss and model healthy coping skills. Teachers are pressured to produce test scores leaving little time to connect with their students emotionally.

This lack of human interaction with positive role models, coupled with isolation and many hours spent staring at screens filled with violent games and movies while cyber bullying, tweeting, texting and sexting - inducing a dangerous breeding ground. This recipe of isolation, violent media plus a lack of healthy role models escalates anger into the birth of a new strain of mental health issues - maladaptive coping skills. Kids learn that when they are upset they can avoid pain by escaping into addictions and mindless or negatively emotionally charged activities which left unchecked escalate to bullying, suicides, gun violence, homicides, and the list goes on. Even the most stable looking kids are becoming severely stunted in their social and emotional growth, developing a lifetime of poor coping strategies.
 
“We keep trying to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people... we need to put as many resources into the schools to make people less dangerous!” Liza Long, author of the blog: "I am Adam Lanza's Mother".
