Welcome to episode #043 of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast, with Melissa Agnes and Tad Milmine.
Those of you who know me and follow my work, know that bullying is a youth-affecting crisis that touches my heart. Every once in a while I write about this growing issue and do what I can to provide helpful resources and strategies for educational institutions and law enforcement. That said, I was recently introduced to Tad Milmine’s work in bully prevention and I was enamoured by his message and his proactive approach to helping bullied youth directly.
Tad is a police officer who travels to schools around Canada on his time off to speak with students about the impact and realities of bullying. By getting personal with them, he’s able to reach them on an emotional level and has had a very positive impact on many bullied youth’s lives around the country.
Within this episode of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast, I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with Tad about his work in bully prevention. In this episode, Tad shares his story and the strategies that have proven to work for him. He also provides tips and takeaways for law enforcement, educational institutions and parents dealing with this type of youth-related crisis.
This episode of The Crisis Intelligence Podcast discusses:
- How Tad uses the power of emotion and relatability to reach the hearts of young people.
- The law as it relates to cyberbullying and sextortion.
- Practical measures educational institutions can take to provide themselves and their staff with answers and guidelines to help bullied youth.
- Steps law enforcement can take to assess and approach the management of these types of cases and incidents.
- Helpful insights on bullying for parents and other adults with bullied youths in their lives.
If you’re in law enforcement, work in education or have a child in your life who is or may be being impacted by bullying, then this podcast will provide you with unique insights, perspectives and helpful tips. Enjoy!
