Bullying prevention workshop

The Canadian Red Cross will be holding a bullying prevention workshop in Sparwood

  • Oct. 10, 2011 8:00 a.m.

The Canadian Red Cross will be holding a bullying prevention workshop in Sparwood called Beyond the Hurt thanks to sponsorship from the Columbia Basin Trust and the City of Sparwood.  Any parents, coaches or other adults who work with children and youth are invited to attend the workshop to help better understand the issues behind bullying and learn how to develop and implement successful prevention strategies.

“For too long, bullying has been dismissed as a normal, harmless part of growing up,” explains facilitator Jodie Parker. “But something that causes long-term misery and deeply scars so many lives cannot be dismissed as just ‘kid stuff’.  The solution isn’t simple but there are ways to help young people make better choices and stop the cruelty and the suffering.”

The workshop will be held on October 25 and 27 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Chamber of Commerce in Sparwood.  If you would like to participate in the Beyond the Hurt workshop, contact Jodie Parker at jodparker@shaw.ca

Register early as there are only 20 seats.
