( - Staunton, VA... With bullying being such an issue in schools and gaining momentum in the media due to suicides and violent acts of lashing out, programs that provide positive solutions can help prevent events such as these. Just released Smile Inside: Experiential Activities for Self-Awareness Ages 14-15 provides an underlying anti-bullying theme but also looks at the question, "Who am I?" As a personal development resource, Smile Inside is a prevention program which provides interactive and introspective experiences and a guide for developing a more successful life journey.

Author Vanessa Lee asks, "Imagine what the world would be like if all individuals based their actions on reasons of empathy rather than fear of consequences? So how can we best prepare today's youth for today's society? We must give them opportunities to gain insight about themselves: their behavior, their feelings, their minds, and their motivations. We must help them acquire a healthy self-concept and cater to their social and emotional needs. We must support them in developing the skills and awareness that are imperative in preventing problems like depression, anxiety, suicide, eating disorders, addiction, and abuse which are prevalent today. We must be dedicated to the well-being of youth. It is our responsibility." Vanessa is passionate about making a difference with teens today, "They are our future!"

Vanessa Lee is a lifelong educator who has devoted her professional career to the fields of student well-being, welfare, and personal development. With a Bachelors of Science degree in education Vanessa has worked for the Kansas City, Missouri School District and helped to develop the curriculum at an Applied Learning Magnet school. She has also worked at Mackillop Family Services with at-risk youth, and delivered professional development workshops at the Victorian Music Conference in Melbourne. Vanessa is a trained yoga instructor and has years of experience working in the fields of welfare and well-being for schools and community agencies. She is currently a member of the Victorian Institute of Teaching and works with various schools near Melbourne.
