7:30-9:00 pm

For ATT Teachers


      (ATT Course Code CDV, ECP, CD) 

Is your child bullied, a bystander, or...a bully? Learn the dynamics of bullying and how you can help your child become an assertive and empathic member of a caring community. Since bullies are created, not born, parents and teachers have an obligation to create an environment of safety and tolerance for their children. We will explore developmental dynamics, the differences between tattling and telling, normal healthy conflict, aggression, and bullying.

Day and Time: Wednesday evening, 7:30-9:00 pm
