As part of its year-long Preventing Bullying = Creating
Safety initiative, WGTE Public Media will host
teachers, school administrators, counselors, and other education
professionals at a free workshop on Wednesday, October 23, 2013
from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at WGTE, 1270 South Detroit Avenue in
The workshop will focus on identifying and responding to
bullying behavior. Young people experience bullying in school,
but also while involved in extracurricular activities and
through social media and other avenues of cyberbullying.
How can the adults identify when bullying occurs, and act
appropriately? How can organizations and classrooms meet
governmental mandates and best practices to have anti-bullying
policies in place?
