Be Positively Powerful

Be Positively Powerful is an approach for youth empowerment that is fully grounded in research on resilience and positive psychology. (This approach also works for adults!) There are seven Be Positively Powerful strategies. 

Nice to Meet You

I am the director of Embrace Civility LLC. I have a background as a special education teacher of students with emotional challenges and was also an attorney. I currently focus on issues of youth who have experienced trauma, are neurodiverse, or have other emotional challenges. I also have worked for over a decade in bullying prevention. I am the author of Engage Students to Embrace Civility, Empower Your Child to Be Positively Powerful, and Empower your Bullied Child and Insist Your Child's School Stop the Harm. I also run a program that uses miniature donkeys for empowerment activities for young people called The Way of the Donkey. 

"Nancy's work is the result of decades of research and personal passion. Her resources are powerfully positive for anyone who wants to empower youth!"

- Russ Sabella, past president of the American School Counselor's Association

"Our research has shown that resilience is the most important trait that buffers and protects against the internalization of harm intended through bullying and cyberbullying. The insight that Nancy brings to increasing youth resilience is excellent."

- Sameer Hinduja, Cyberbullying Research Center

"Nancy Willard has always been a pioneer when it comes to addressing school bullying and empowering students and parents to address and overcome it."

- Joseph M. "Mike" Tully, Attorney and Former Board Member of the International Bullying Prevention Association

Educators and Youth Workers

I am currently working on a version of these courses for educators and for those in out-of-school-time organizations.

These current courses for parents will also provide you with a valuable framework for understanding. You are encouraged to enroll in one of these courses to determine their appropriateness for parents. 

School Leaders

Please understand that I have worked in bullying prevention for over a decade. There are systemic barriers to effective efforts to reduce hurtful behavior and effectively intervene in these situations -- not individual fault.  I hope you appreciate my efforts to seek to empower parents to empower their children to reduce the likelihood others will be hurtful to them and effectively respond. I also am supporting them in better documenting what is happening to their child and the harmful impact. I am encouraging a resolution approach grounded in civil rights laws. You can download a document that explains the basis of the information I am providing to parents. More information can be found at Embrace Civility.
