Imagine, a Center for Coping with Loss, located in Mountainside, is offering a Bullies to Buddies training on Thursday, Sept. 27, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Bullying is a challenge for many students but grieving children and youth are more likely to be bullied or become a bully.  The Bullies to Buddies method fosters resilience by showing how to respond to verbal aggression.

Children from third-grade up, parents, school staff members and community members are invited to attend. They do not have to have been impacted by loss recently. RSVP by Tuesday, Sept. 25, to Connie Palmer at
