[Atlanta] Preventing and Addressing Bullying and Exclusion for Parents and Educators

  • The Epstein School 335 Colewood Way NW Sandy Springs, GA 30328 USA (map)

The Epstein School, SOJOURN, and Groundspark Films invite parents, grandparents, education and clergy professionals, community members and students 6th grade and older to join us for a free afternoon workshop on preventing bullying and exclusion in schools featuring the film Let's Get Real.
School should be a safe and a happy environment where learning becomes a joy. Too often, though, bullying, name-calling, and teasing shatter that safety.  Conversations and activities will center on real-life solutions and strategies to ensure that every child feels safe and welcome in a school environment. Adult participants will learn how to support this safe environment at home, at school and at community institutions, while 6th through 12th graders will participate in a special student-focused track in which they will discuss how they can help keep themselves and their friends feeling safe and welcome.  Social work professionals will be on hand to discuss any concerns that arise.
