Workshop Description

Regardless of socio economic level, educational achievement, or community awareness, bullying persists to varying degrees in all schools.  This problem may go unchecked due to the fact that many students do not want to report these incidents to those in authority.  When bullying occurs on or off campus - electronically or otherwise - school climate and academic achievement are negatively impacted.

This workshop will provide educators with the knowledge, educational resources, and methodologies necessary to significantly reduce these destructive behaviors.
