…Linking UP… April 1st, 2016 videoconference session on Bullying had a very successful turnout. Although there were some technical issues, presenters Scot Cooper, Ed Sanchuk and Self Advocate Crystal Silverthorne were able to deliver an excellent presentation on Bullying. Crystal spoke first sharing her story and her experiences of being bullied in school and had a final word of “you are important no matter what people say”. Then Scot Cooper, a Registered Psychotherapist and Ed Sanchuk, an OPP Constable spoke on this topic and answered questions from participants across the province. Here are a few pictures showing the presenters and some of the participants using the videoconferencing equipment:
