    Green Dot for Parents Morning Session

    9:30 am-11:00 am
    Barrington Area Library
    505 N. Northwest Highway, Barrington, IL 60010


    Come learn more about Green Dot – the new interpersonal violence program at Barrington High School.  The Green Dot Violence Prevention Strategy is a national program that trains students, faculty, and staff in bystander intervention to help prevent instances of power-based personal violence (PBPV). PBPV is a form of violence where one individual asserts power, control, or intimidation over another to cause harm.  This research-based approach employing social change theory targets all community members as potential bystanders and seeks to engage them through awareness, education and skills practice.  By teaching proactive behaviors that establish intolerance of violence as the norm, as well as strategies for intervention in high-risk situations, Green Dot training results in a reduction of violence in the school community.

    At the BStrong Together “Green Dot for Parents” Parent Coffee, Green Dot trainers will teach parents and community members about the program, explain the Three D’s, and provide participants with the shared language so that you know how to talk with your children or students about living the Green Dot in their  own lives.
