"Weakfish: Bullying through the Eyes of a Child," a talk by international school safety expert Michael Dorn, will be presented from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. In Room 213 of the Disepio Institute  on the campus of Saint Francis University in Loretto.

This powerful and thought provoking presentation uses the case study of a real child who was chronically bullied in school to illustrate problems relating to problems that are not detected by or reported to adults who work with children. It examines the critical role that educators, mental health professionals, law enforcement officers and others play as role models for children who face extreme challenges. 

The event is sponsored by Saint Francis University Police, Residence Life, Student Government Association, and Student Engagement & Leadership.
