On the 10 year anniversary of her original webinar, Dr. Novick, a premier expert on bullying, will revisit the topic, its unique characteristics, and impact in the Jewish community. The focus of the webinar will be on what parents and educators can do to help children who are teased or socially excluded, and how we can work with all children to be socially responsible bystanders and create caring communities.
