SKILLS FOR MINDFUL LIVING FREE LECTURE

BULLY-PROOFING YOUR CHILD

Building resilience from school settings to social media

Presenter:  

Tyler Milley, BSc, MA, RCC, Registered Clinical Counsellor

The prevalence of bullying in schools, the rapid emergence of cyberbullying, and the recent increase in media attention on bullying, means it is now more important than ever to 'bully-proof' your child.  However, protecting our children from the emotional, psychological, and physical effects of bullying has never been a more complex and difficult task.  This seminar will explore a cultural context from which to view the problem of bullying, as well as providing practical advice for parents, teachers, students, and counsellors, on how to prevent and respond to bullying behaviour at home, at school, and online.

Tyler Milley, MA, RCC, is a psychotherapist in private practice at the ABLE Developmental Clinic in West Vancouver.  Tyler has almost 20 years of experience working with children and teenagers, and has spent the past decade specializing in the areas of bullying, anxiety, high functioning autism, and ADHD.  Tyler's practice regularly takes him into elementary and high schools to consult with parents, teachers, counsellors, and administrators on how to empower struggling students and address chronic conflict.  Tyler was born and raised on the North Shore and continues to live here with his wife and two young children, and yet, amazingly, has never owned a mountain bike!
