Event Description

With the rapid growth of technology and innovative new methods of communication, children and youth are now more accessible to one other; increasing the space for conflict and abuse. It has become an increasing challenge for parents and professionals to effectively address and respond to the problem of bullying.

In a study conducted by The University of Toronto (2008), 21% of students had experienced online bullying in the past three months and 10% had experienced sexual harassment in the form of words or photos. Such instances of bullying can have long-term developmental effects and lead to tragic consequences.

In this two-day workshop, parents and professionals will have the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to prepare and respond effectively to bullying. Topics include: understanding cyberbullying, safe social networking and sexting, responding and preventing cyberbullying, school-wide interventions and promoting healthy relationships to prevent bullying.
