Tailored Seminars

Longer seminars are geared to a specific audience (e.g., education support personnel), unique issues (e.g., cyberbullying), and/or local need (e.g., planning a school-wide approach to bullying prevention). The expanded use of interactive learning and planning tools embeds knowledge and leads to enhanced follow through.
