Community Forum on Bullying and the Challenges of Power
Date: 10:00am - 1:00pm PDT November 23, 2013 PST Location: Graduate Campus, South Chapel
Graduate Campus, South Chapel
Bullying can threaten a child’s physical and emotional safety and can negatively impact their ability to learn at school.
In this workshop, we will review the state and district level approaches to preventing and addressing bullying. We will also provide a particular example of a unique college/district partnership in which college professors, sixth grade teachers, and graduate students are involved in mentoring middle school students in mutually beneficial ways.
Workshop participants will leave with a very specific and personal way of addressing bullying in daily living using strategic storytelling.
Through the stories, participants will be able to address the more complex dynamics of bullying which include validating the anger response in seeking retaliation and desiring influence, challenging the fixed roles of the bully and target, and exploring a variety of powerful ways to support one another.
