Kids Anti-Bullying workshop

An amazing 3-day anti-bullying course taught by Richard Verlaan was held this past August. The participants were given some great tips and information on how to recognize bullying, identify what bullies look for in a victim and what to do if it happens to you. students learned to de-escalate and diffuse threat situations using words through role-playing exercises as well as learned what to do when words are not enough. Fun skill building drills were used to teach kids how to evade, avoid and elude danger as well as, as a last resort, how to apply maximum resistance! The children all learned to increase their awareness and understood that when they are actually being bullied, or see someone else who is, that they need to speak up. It is all about dealing with the problem before it gets worse, a most valuable life lesson.. At the end of the last day, the parents were treated to some great role-play skits and every student recieved a certificate. Thank you Richard for a great course!
