US Study

Ongoing evaluation of Stories of Us has consistently revealed statistically significant changes in student attitudes. One such study of the P3R Classroom Resource entitled Enhancing Student Attitudes via a Brief, Universal-Level Bullying Prevention Curriculum (Tyler L. Renshaw & Shane R. Jimerson) was recently published in the 2012 School Mental Health journal.

Australia Study

The University of South Australia awarded a 1st Class Distinction for an Honors’ Thesis on Stories of Us. Richard Stephens’ study (with Dr. Barbara Spears as second author), involved an evaluation of the use of the Australian primary Bullying resource – and recorded a significant positive shift in student attitudes. The quantitative study concluded that: "Viewing the Stories of Us videos and participation in the corresponding class work had a measurable, statistically significant, positive influence on student attitudes towards victims". Importantly, the post-intervention findings included a 20% decrease in those who felt: 'Kids who get picked on usually deserve it'.
