Why become a Certified Prevention Specialist (CPS) through The Camel Project?

As a leader in your community, you will increase your knowledge base to recognize and identify the need for all community members to thrive in a safe, non-judgmental and caring environment as an advocate in addressing Bullying and other aggressive learned behaviors, inclusivity, and equity programs that foster a positive climate. In addition, the program Deconstructing the Culture of Bullying: Preventing Bullying-Based Violence in our Schools & Communities will help you improve your mental and emotional health, build more vital relationship skills, and manage stress.

Unresolved bullying behaviors in young people, if not interrupted, often result in bullying behaviors in adulthood. Thirty percent of workers reported Bullying, and nineteen percent witnessed Bullying affecting 79.3 million Americans in the workplace. The CPS program educates and equips communities to set standards with tools, strategies, and a wellness plan to address the destructive issues of trauma and abuse that stems from the aggressive learned behavior of Bullying. We deconstruct the culture of Bullying and the connection between emotions and behaviors resulting in chronic toxic adults.
