As Courtney Burkey, Community Education Coordinator, Fairfax Partnership for Youth, observes, bullying is no longer playground antics or “kids being kids” -- it has become a vicious, dehumanizing experience for youth and adults alike. The explosion of technology has opened numerous new avenues for modern bullies to target and torment their victims. Ms. Burkey will discuss the causes of bullying, ways to prevent it from occurring and how to address it when it does take place.

    Really great look at what bullying looks like today (different than when I was a kid) and steps adults can take to deal with it.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
