Operant Conditioning Overview - Excellent though a bit long and technical but of specific interest is the section on punishment in operant conditioning. Basically - providing punishment is less effective than eliminating the reward when you are trying to extinguish a behavior.
Note: I am working on a follow up book: The Bully Vaccine for the Workplace. In the meantime, please know that the principles in The Bully Vaccine are directly applicable to workplace bullying because the dynamic is the same even if the behavior manifests differently. In the meantime, here are some resources for you.
Jen teaches parents practical ways they can protect their kids from bullying. Using techniques she learned from her mother as well as from her experience as a dolphin trainer in Hawaii. These skills are so easy to learn even a kindergartner can understand them.
As a mother herself, Jen taught these skills to her son when he was a kindergartener and he was easily able to put them into practice the very next day. And, yes, they worked, he even endorsed her book, The Bully Vaccine.
