Free two-part workshop presented by Dr. Seria Chatters and Dr. Carlos Zalaquett. Childcare provided. Registration required by Sept. 9.

Part 1 – Saturday, Sept. 16 – 9 am – noon
Part 2 – Saturday, Sept. 23 – 9 am – noon

As we prepare for the new school year, protecting our children from bullying may not be on our “To Do” list. We may think that unless our child is a perpetrator or tells us they are a target of bullying behavior, we don’t need to be concerned about it. Unfortunately, research indicates that many children do not tell their parents about their involvement in bullying, and witnesses of bullying often experience psychological, social, and academic consequences similar to being bullied themselves.

Bullying is often based on bias in that students are targeted due to being “different.” These differences can be based on race, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, immigration status, disability, weight, and many other characteristics.

In this free two-part workshop, you will learn
1) how to recognize and respond if your child experiences or witnesses bullying
2) how to recognize symptoms of bullying in your child (even if they are not telling you)
3) what is bias and how it impacts bullying behaviors
4) legal considerations if your child is bullied
5) how to support parents and children who may be impacted by bullying or bias-based bullying

This workshop will be interactive. Come prepared to role-play, share, and have a good time while we learn how to help our children and prepare them for a wonderful school year!

Space limited to 150 parents. Register by Sept. 9th at this link: https://pennstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_26mXRik7guDnMyx
