Bullies to Buddies
Since the tragedy of Columbine, society has desperately attempted to eliminate the problem of bullying through strategies of punishing bullies, reinforcing the standard that bullying is wrong and by identifying role models who stand up against bullying.
Even with all these efforts the problem of bullying is increasing. In this workshop you will learn social skills to teach your clients so they will know how to respond to verbal aggression from others.
Participants will be able to:
- Summarize social, cultural & other factors that contribute to the escalation of bullying & cyberbullying
- Identify who is most at risk for being bullied, becoming a bully, or not helping a victim of bullying.
- Describe the impact of bullying including an increased risk of suicide
- Evaluate the pros and cons of prominent anti-bullying programs and strategies
- Roleplay strategies designed to empower prosocial responses to verbal aggression
- $80 -Registration Fee
