A Talk by DR. EMILY LOVEGROVE:
Wednesday 20th April 2016, The Castle Hotel, Brecon, 7pm
Most of us have felt bullied at one time or another. Either by people, by events, or even by our health. What matters, though, is how we deal with it.
The next event for the Friends of Brecon and District Mind addresses these issues. Using visual aids and lively examples, psychologist Dr Emily Lovegrove will explain why traditional anti-bullying strategies tend to fail and how the way we look affects what happens. She will demonstrate what actually works.
The aim of the evening is to shed light on what can sometimes feel like an overwhelming topic and give clear, practical and easy ways forward.
Dr Lovegrove was formerly a Research Fellow at the University of the West of England, Bristol, studying bullying issues. She then became anti-bullying consultant for Pembrokeshire County Council. She has written Help! I’m Being Bullied: A Practical Guide for Children and Adults. She lectures internationally and has recently written anti-bullying policy documents for the Welsh Government.
