BULLYING Awareness WorkshopWorkshop
In recent years, the unwanted aggressive behavior known as “bullying” has increased in schools and every day this form of physical or verbal harassment is more common in children and adolescents. For many children, threats, intimidation and even domination through aggressive use of force is a reality they experience regularly. As an example, in Fairfax County, Virginia, 53% of youth reported being the target of bullying and 51% reported they bullied others (Fairfax County Youth Survey, 2011-2012). To address this growing social problem, Family Services Network provides workshops for students, parents, educators, counselors and other adults to raise awareness on bullying as everybody’s problem. Our workshops are designed to teach participants how to talk to children about bullying, how to recognize this harmful behavior, its characteristics and effects and how to prevent the problem.
