The Bullying Revolution is a project for social change founded by bullying behaviour educators Cameron Gill and Teresa Butler. We believe in a world free of bullying behaviours, where children don’t just survive, but thrive. Our aim is to create a revolution in the bullying field with approaches that result in sustainable cultural change.
Teresa Butler is a psychologist, educator, author, advocate, and a chaser of squirrels. She has over twenty years counselling and advocacy experience with disadvantaged and vulnerable youth and children. Teresa has a diverse background in youth mental health, disability services, training and development, and university teaching. Teresa is The Bullying Revolution’s director, co-founder and program developer.
Our founder and his Legacy
Cameron Gill was a teacher, author, social entrepreneur, bullying prevention advocate, paediatric physiotherapist, and creator of superheroes. He was also an avid chaser of wild squirrels. Cameron died recently after a seven year journey with brain cancer. His prognosis increased his urgency and desire to work hard to impact real change, and he was driven to push beyond boundaries of expectations to embrace challenges others may consider impossible.
Cameron was a true revolutionary who never strayed from his goal to make the world a better place. He was especially renowned for tackling a challenge or pursuing a path simply because someone was heard to say it couldn’t be done. Cameron made it his life’s work to create the biggest positive impact in the lives of as many people as possible.
We are proud to have begun this revolution with Cam at our side, and we will continue this adventure and his legacy work until we truly change the world for the better.
What’s with the squirrels…?
If you’ve seen our posts, workshop resources, presentations, and comments on our pages, you’ll notice they often feature squirrels. We’re pretty passionate and excited by the work we do, and we love to talk and share ideas. We are easily excited and distracted by great tangential ideas, and we want to explore them all. If you’re not sure what we’re talking about, check out the Pixar film UP, and watch the talking dogs stop whatever they are doing whenever they scent a squirrel. That’s us. Squirrel chasers!
We love chasing squirrels, and we welcome diverse and tangential conversations!
