Meet Charisse Nixon
Charisse received her Ph.D. from West Virginia University in Developmental Psychology and is currently an Associate Professor at Penn State Erie. Her primary research interest focuses on covert aggression, including both prevention and intervention efforts. Charisse trains educators (and students) throughout the United States; her workshops and consultations provide a unique integration of empirical research and practical strategies to help optimize students' development.
Charisse's work has been featured in many national venues, as well as published in several peer-reviewed journals. She is the co-author of the 2003 book Girls Wars: 12 Strategies that Will End Female Bullying (Fireside, 2003). Charisse has presented keynotes and workshops at conferences throughout the United States and Canada including seminars on Understanding and Optimizing Adolescent Development, Creating Positive Connections to Reduce Covert Aggression (CCC), Crimes of the Heart: Understanding Peer Aggression, and Leaving a Legacy of Hope. She has spent years training educators, students, and parents about prevention and intervention efforts designed to optimize relationships. Using an assets framework, her trainings integrate empirical research and practical strategies to maximize children and adolescents' development.
Recently, with Stan Davis, Charisse is co-leading the Youth Voice Project, a large-scale research project identifying what works and what doesn't work in bullying prevention. Currently, their data set includes over 13,000 young people from 25 different states.
