2010 Alberti Center Symposium

The center's first activity was the symposium "Prevention of Bullying Abuse and School Violence" on April 27, 2010 in Lippes Concert Hall in Slee Hall on the UB North Campus. Nearly 400 teachers, administrators, child psychologists, law enforcement officials, and other interested community members attended the daylong event.

The symposium featured a keynote address by Professor Dorothy Espelage, a renowned expert on the prevention of bullying from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Alberti opened the symposium with the address "Bullying is Child Abuse by Children," which included a discussion of her "Bullying Tree" concept. The program also included examples of successful interventions from the Cleveland Hill School District, as well as an evaluation of existing programs from James Donnelly, clinical associate professor in the Department of Counseling, School, and Educational Psychology.
