Barbara Coloroso is an internationally recognized speaker and author in the areas of parenting, teaching, school discipline, non-violent conflict resolution and reconciliatory justice. She is an educational consultant for school districts, the medical and business community, the criminal justice system and other educational associations around the world.
Barbara has served as a classroom teacher, a laboratory school instructor, and a university instructor. She will be speaking about Breaking the cycle of violence through her latest book:
“The Bully, The Bullied, and the Not so Innocent Bystander”
Examining how a child becomes a bully or the target of a bully as well as the role bystanders play in perpetuating the cycle of violence in our homes, schools, and communities requires that we examine both the why and the how.
Some bullied children whose cries went unheard, whose pains were ignored, whose oppression went unabated and unrelieved, have struck back with a vengeance and sorrow.
The Ethics Café presents: The Ethics of Sex
Manitoba ASCD Journal | Reflections
Read about MARLs High School Ethic`s Bowl (p44) and the value of teaching ethics.
When asked about how working with ethical dilemmas has impacted her, she responded by saying that ethics “has helped me understand myself in many aspects. I have realized that I can think at much deeper levels than I ever thought was possible for me. This thinking has helped me both see myself differently as well as know myself at a much deeper level.”
– Quiana, grade 10 student and a member of the River East Collegiate Ethics Bowl Team
