Bullying: Early Identification & Intervention in Child Care
Have you ever wondered if children are capable of engaging in bullying behaviour? Is there a danger in labelling young children’s behaviour in this way? Find the answers to these questions and more! Using a didactic and interactive format, this workshop focuses on learning: what bullying in young children is and isn’t, how it develops in early childhood, and the impact on the children both directly and indirectly involved. Signs to look out for, and strategies to help prevent and manage this type of behaviour in a child care setting will be also discussed.
