Find out more about WGTE and Fostering Healthy Communities' "Preventing Bullying = Creating Safety" initiative at http://www.preventingbullying.orgDuring this afternoon workshop, the focus will be on identifying and responding to bullying behavior. Young people experience bullying in school environments, but also outside of school while involved in extracurricular activities and through social media and other avenues of cyberbullying.

How can the adults in these situations identify when bullying occurs, and act appropriately for all parties concerned. How can organizations and classrooms meet governmental mandates and best practices to have anti-bullying policies in place?

Presenters: Sheri Tripepi, University of Toledo lecturer with a focus on social work and anti-violence, and Rob Salem, University of Toledo Clinical Professor, College of Law
