Jennifer Hancock is a mom, author of several books and founder of Humanist Learning Systems. She is considered one of the top speakers and writers in the world of Humanism today.

Jennifer’s approach to stopping bullying and harassment is unique. She specializes in teaching a behavioral approach to harassment problems. Specifically focusing on how unwanted behaviors are extinguished. There is more than 70 years of research on how to extinguish unwanted behavior and what is known has a direct impact on why harassment and bullying are so hard to stop and why attempts to stop it result in retaliation. Retaliation is predicted to occur in the behavioral model and it’s time we start taking that into account in our approaches to making it stop. Harassment is a behavioral problem and it requires a behavioral approach to stop.
