Though there are many facets of preventing bullying, this particular workshop focuses on the victim or target of hurtful language and bullying behaviors. The activities in this workshop focus on taking power away from the person engaging in bullying behaviors by helping those who are targeted feel empowered, confident, and prepared to respond to bullying when it happens. This workshop includes ideas on creating a safety plan, responding assertively rather than aggressively, and practicing mindfulness to help stay psychologically and emotionally safe in the face of bullying and other challenging situations.
Registration is required and the $10 workshop fee can be paid at the door.
