Bullying, Empathy, and Monkeys

Presented by: Jeff Frigon

Webinar Description:
Empathy is directly linked to bullying; the more empathy we have, the more likely we are to be kind to one another and not bully (or be bullied).  By building healthy, empathetic communities and understanding the connection between empathy, fear, vulnerability, anonymity, and bullying, we can act in a preventative rather than a reactive way.  This workshop will  explore what the research shows to be effective and why using an interactive, multimedia approach.
