Best selling author to speak at Bullying Conference

Released by Parent Services Center:

TYLER, TX - Barbara Coloroso will be the speaker for the Parent Services Center annual parenting conference on Saturday, January 22, 2011, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  The conference, "The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander," will be held at the Ornelas Activity Center on the UT Tyler Campus, 3402 Old Omen Road.

Ms. Coloroso is the author of four bestsellers: Kids Are Worth It!, Parenting Through Crisis, The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander, and Just Because It's Not Wrong Doesn't Make It Right. She is an internationally recognized speaker and consultant on parenting, teaching, school discipline, positive school climate, bullying, grieving, nonviolent conflict resolution and restorative justice.

Parents, teachers, childcare providers and mental health professionals will hear Ms. Coloroso explain how to give kids the tools to be able to stand up for their own rights while respecting the rights and legitimate needs of others; to handle conflicts nonviolently; to act with integrity when confronted with difficult situations; and to develop a personal code (inner moral code) that gives them the wherewithal to do what is right in spite of external consequences.

Early registration (before January 14) is $15 and late registration is $20.  Proof of attendance will be provided and continuing education credit is available for professional counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists and teachers.  Lunch will be provided.
