The ABCs of Bullying
Mar 09 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Sponsored by the Family Advocacy Network (FAN), a program of Mental Health America of the Triangle
Bullying has grown to near epidemic proportions across the country and communities are left wondering how to make effective change to insure the safety and well-being of all youth. Bullying is aggressive behavior. It's intentional and it involves an imbalance of power or strength. While boys tend to bully using physical violence, girls often bully each other using social exclusion and abusive language.
In this workshop, LaTesha Williams, LCSW with A Peace of Mind Counseling will teach participants:
- types of bullying
- identify reasons children are bullied
- risk factors associated with being a bully and being a victim
- legal and ethical issues surrounding bullying
- strategies to reduce or eliminate bullying behaviors
