I Got Your Back: Workshops on bullying for parents
witf | 04.19.13
In conjunction with witf's Pushed Around series on bullying, witf and the Byrnes Health Education Center have scheduled workshops for parents in York, Hershey and Harrisburg.
These adults-only programs are designed to define bullying and all of its types, explore myths and identify the signs. With guidance from expert advisor, Marguerite Ferrara, the program will provide parents with the tools they need to help protect their children.
Marguerite Ferrara is Assistant Director of Education at the Byrnes Health Education Center in York. She is responsible for teaching and developing programs for youth as well as adults. In keeping with the Center’s mission of educating and inspiring people of all ages to make healthy choices, the organization’s character education and anti-bullying programs were developed as a direct result of requests for information from teachers and parents in the community. Ferrara is a graduate of Rowan University with a degree in Health and Physical Education K-12.
These workshops are free, but you must RSVP online in order to attend. You may also reserve your seat by calling 1-717-704-3000. The program normally lasts about an hour.
