The state Department of the Attorney General will sponsor a "Nobody Loves a Bully" Training Institute 2001 Workshop on April 25 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Coral Ballroom. This workshop will cover tips, tools and techniques on how to deal with bullies.
State Attorney General Earl Anzai said: "Bullying is a destructive force in our lives. Nationwide, bullying causes over 160,000 children to skip school every day."
"This workshop is an excellent example of how we can prevent bullying and learn to be better parents, teachers, mentors and role models," said Anzai.
Dorothy Wilhelm, media personality in the Northwest area, will train attendees on how to deal with bullies.
Cost for the workshop is $35. The registration deadline is April 20. Those interested can go to the Web site cpja.ag.state.hi.us for a registration form.
