The sensory aspects of the courses would be beneficial to any child; the information that is shared is priceless.

Seminars@Hadley presents

Bullying: Why Does it Happen And What Can We Do to Minimize its Impact?

Date: Wednesday, April 23
Time: 10:00 AM CDT 15:00 GMT

Presenter: Lauri Dishman

Let's face it: being bullied hurts. Would you like to gain a better understanding and be more prepared emotionally? This seminar will explore bullying from the perspective of those who are blind or visually impaired.

Join Seminars@Hadley as Lauri Dishman, licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) and owner of Your Inner Focus, a private mental health practice helping those adjusting with vision loss, shares her insights on bullying both from the perspective of those who are bullied and those who do the bullying. The goal is to help build a stronger resilience and gain greater confidence. Larry Muffett, a member of Hadley’s Seminars team, will moderate this 60-minute seminar. A question and answer session will be included as part of the seminar.
