Workshops on counteracting cyberbullying
Violence in Internet space has just as negative consequences as physical aggression. Lack of support can lead to depression, anxiety and even suicide of the victim – mainly children and adolescents. Therefore, are important educational activities carried out in schools and other educational institutions in the field of counteracting cyberbullying, as well as developing empathy and tolerance.
Workshops on counteracting cyberbullying conducted by expert psychologists with many years of training experience focused on phenomena occurring in cyberspace.
During the workshops, participants will not only understand what cyber violence is, but also how to combat it. All this is to help you notice when we become victims, witnesses or perpetrators of cyber violence and how we can respond to it.
Then the children and young people who take part in the workshops will be asked to conduct their own workshop on counteracting cyberbullying in their environment (e.g. in class, in an association or a scout team). If they accomplish this task, they will be invited as ambassadors for the next activities implemented by the city to counter cyberbullying.
Classes are intended for carers and children and youth from schools or other institutions, such as: associations, care centers, sports teams, scout teams, community centers, etc.
Classes will be held in three age groups: grades 4-5 of primary school, grades 6-8 of primary school and post-primary schools.
Separate (special) training will be conducted for carers of children and young people participating in the workshops.
