We are hosting Colleen Drobot of the Neufeld Institute for the 2nd part in her series on Bullying on Wednesday evening. This workshop titled: The Making and Unmaking of Bullies will take an in depth look at working with aggressors. Whether or not your child (or you) has been on either end of the spectrum of bullying behaviour, this talk is important for all of us as we learn to be responsible, empathetic human beings in the world. Do not miss this excellent opportunity to hear Colleen speak! Attendance at the first presentation is not a prerequisite.

She works with adults for their own personal counselling or for parenting consultation. She is also an educator has over 20 years experience working with children in the regular classroom or in special needs settings. She also works with several school districts to help educators make sense of their students’ behaviour. She is a faculty member of the Neufeld Institute and has worked with Dr. Gordon Neufeld’s approach for many years. Colleen is a mother of two and draws from her personal as well as professional experience to support parents and professionals in gaining insight, opening their hearts and leading by their intuition.
