"Imagine the Possibilities: Bullying Stops Today," presentation by retired school principal and guidance counselor Mark Walters

The time-proven strategies offered will give parents and teens ways to deal with the types of bullying situations that are typically seen in most communities. Topics to be covered will include how to recognize if your child is being the target of bullying behaviors, ways to be aware of whether or not your child is engaging in bullying behaviors, techniques your child can use to “handle” a bully, and an understanding of how bullying has reached beyond the schoolyard with the power to intrude on all aspects of society, including the workplace. This program will include audience participation, Q & A, role play and a “hands on” activity referred to as “mirror image reflection.”

Location: Springfield Public Library – 66 Mountain Avenue, Springfield, NJ 07081.
