The members of the Women’s Giving Circle, a Fund of ECCF, hosted their Fall Educational Event on Monday, Sep. 24, 2018. The topic was “Cyberbullying Education and Prevention: Responding to Adolescent Misuses of Technology and Its Effects on Children.”
Eau Claire Area School District Superintendent Dr. Mary Ann Hardebeck spoke about cyberbullying as it affects children in the District as well as the District’s efforts to combat it.
Dr. Justin Patchin, a pioneer in the field of cyberbullying research, then spoke about his work and provided an array of strategies for parents to use when addressing the issue with their children.
Thanks to the work of both presenters, local families will now have an expanded toolbox to help them fight the pervasive and destructive problem of cyberbullying.
