Texting, Facebook, and Snapchat provide unlimited, unsupervised and peer-driven social interactions ripe for bullying and other forms of unkindness. Bullies gossip, write things on social media and exclude you from social events. Bullying is not a normal part of growing up; it doesn’t build character; and it impacts an optimal learning environment. Despite a great deal of attention being paid to anti-bullying efforts in the past several years, and the increased breadth of the problem, it is no wonder that schools, despite their best efforts, still face bullying concerns on a daily basis.
Licensed clinical psychologist and certified school psychologist John Dominguez, Ph.D will present a paradigm shift that compels us to address this problem in a different way, through a comprehensive focus and emphasis on creating cultures in which bullying and other forms of unkind behavior cannot survive.
This special event is organized as part of Red Ribbon Week (Oct 22-31), as we work to celebrate and promote positive choices, good character and healthy lifestyles for all.
