ADL Parent Workshop: Bullying, Name-Calling and Cyberbullying: What Children Wish Their Parents Knew
The Westport Arts Center and the Anti-Defamation League will present a special free workshop for parents of elementary and middle school children -- “Bullying, Name-Calling and Cyberbullying: What Children Wish Their Parents Knew" -- at the Westport Arts Center on Thursday, December 1 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
The Anti-Defamation League is one of the Arts Center’s community partners for their current exhibition – MORE Than Words/#iammore – featuring juried works created by the community in support of the themes of courage, resilience and empowerment in the face of bullying.
The Anti-Defamation League has reached over 150,000 Connecticut students with their Names Can Really Hurt Us program. In this workshop, Marji Lipshez-Shapiro, ADL’s Director of Education, will share the insights she has gained from working with young people across the state. Lipshez-Shapiro will share how every child is involved in bullying, the four key roles that people play in instances of bullying, and prevention and intervention strategies for parents. She will be joined by a panel of area students who will share their experiences and respond to questions.
Advance registration is required for the event. A drop-in art class is available for children of registered adults, for ages 5 and up. Please contact the Arts Center at 203/222-7070 or register online today.
