Anti-bullying workshop offered by MSU.

October 28, 2015

AMBER TOWNSHIP (Mason County) — Michigan State University Extension will hold an anti-bullying workshop, titled ABCs of Bullying Prevention: Addressing Bullying in Community Settings, on Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 4 to 8 p.m., at the West Shore Educational Service District, 2130 W. U.S. 10-31.

The half-day workshop is designed for adults who live with, care about and work with young people, including parents, caregivers and those who work in schools, youth and family agencies, youth organizations (such as 4-H, Scouts, and boys and girls clubs), juvenile justice, faith-based communities, recreation departments and other community groups.

During the workshop, participants will:

Share perspectives on the prevalence and types of bullying behaviors affecting their communities – and explore how these perspectives connect with recent research.

Examine bullying, bias and harassment through the lens of differences.

Explore key strategies for addressing these complex issues at the personal, interpersonal, institutional and cultural levels.

Learn about programs and resources that can be used in community settings, including an MSU Extension initiative titled Be SAFE: Safe, Affirming and Fair Environments.

 

The workshop will be facilitated by Denise Aungst and Shannon Lindquist, MSU Extension Health and Nutrition educator. It is based on the work of MSU Extension program leaders Janet Olsen and Karen Pace, who are co-authors of the Be SAFE: Safe, Affirming and Fair Environments curriculum.
