Join in Downtown Vancouver for an important and enlightening dialogue about bullying.
Coast Coal Harbour Hotel (Coal Harbour Ballroom)

Bullying has long been considered a part of growing up. In recent years, however, the problem of bullying seems to have escalated. But why? Increased family dysfunction? Lax school policies? Social media? Peer group indifference? Media hype? In order to protect our children, we need to understand the issue and focus on solutions. Is eliminating bullying a realistic goal or is it more important to equip our children with the tools to avoid becoming victims?
For those unable to attend, this event will also be webcast live on YouTube. Details will be posted here closer to the date.
