Beebe Medical Center and Cape Henlopen High School Sponsor Community Forum on Cyber Bullying
"Beebe Medical Center and Cape Henlopen High School will sponsor a free educational program for the community on Cyber Bullying at 7 p.m., January 27, in the high school auditorium.
Keynote speaker will be Stephen M. Bunting, CCFT, EnCE, an expert in the field of Internet crime. Mr. Bunting has more than 35 years experience in law enforcement with an extensive background in computer forensics. As a former captain with the University of Delaware Police Department, he was responsible for computer forensics, video forensics and investigations involving computers. He has taught course for the U.S. Department of State's Anti-Terrorism Assistance Program, as well as for international organizations.
Cape Henlopen High School's Positive Support Program and Beebe Medical Center's Domestic Violence Program are presenting the forum to educate parents about the bullying that occurs on the Internet, and to help them and students understand it, and to take actions to prevent it or to avoid it.
School counselor Terry Sutton says that while cyber bullying does not occur at school, it affects the students who have been bullied or who have participated and leads to disruptive and hostile behavior on the school grounds and in the classroom.
There will be educational materials available and those attending will have an opportunity to ask questions. The presentation will be the first in a series of monthly educational sessions where some of the issues that young people face today and be discussed.
