Are you a law enforcement or mental health professional working in Allegheny county schools? Do you want to learn how to make your school a better place?

If so, register for a free one day bullying prevention training sponsored by the Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention on October 22, 2014 at the Edgewood Country Club. Attendees will gain valuable knowledge and practical training on how to identify children who have been bullied and what specific support they can provide to those children and their families. This training will emphasize the important role that mental health workers and law enforcement officers play in creating a safe school environment for all students and what steps they can take on their own or in partnership with the school’s bullying prevention efforts, to reduce bullying. Breakout sessions will also include Creating Safe School Environments for LGBTQ Students, Cyber Safety, effective on the spot interventions and more. After the workshop, the CHPDP will provide 6 hours of ongoing technical assistance and follow up support to participants to help ensure that they are able to apply and implement the lessons learned in their school buildings. This training and follow up support is made possible through a grant from the Hunt Foundation.
