Jim Bisenius Presents Bully-Proofing Youth Programs September 12

On Monday, September 12, 2016, expert Jim Bisenius will present his acclaimed “Bully-Proofing Youth” programs to Cardinal Pacelli students, faculty, parents, our parish and greater community.

During the school day, students will learn how to identify bullies and the ways they target others through isolation, exclusion and manipulation. Jim’s program demonstrates step-by-step ways for kids to take their power back from bullies.

Faculty will attend a separate training session, where Jim will present specific, proven techniques teachers can use to identify bullying behaviors, intervene in bullying situations, re-map classrooms to reduce bullying opportunities, and facilitate parent involvement.

Parents, guests and our parish community are invited to join the evening workshop at 7:00 p.m., where Jim will cover exactly how to teach a child to respond to verbal, physical and social bullying. Parents will walk away with concrete tools they can immediately implement to help their children eliminate bullying from their lives, and also learn techniques to deal with controlling or intimidating adults.

Please join us on Monday, September 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the school gym for this important, empowering event!
