FRESNO, Calif, (KFSN) --Kaiser Permanente brought Peace Signs to a local school Monday to help spread the message about anti-bullying.
Peace Signs is a program that uses theater to teach children how to resolve conflicts peacefully. About 300 students at Del-Mar Elementary School got a visit from the team.
During the one-hour program, the team addressed issues like name calling, bullying and domestic violence.
"We find that when students empathize with each other they are compassionate with each other," the group's assistant production manager Mike Sagun said. "There is less bullying, less violence, and less fighting."
The program includes four different age-specific productions and was developed by physicians, health educators and theater professionals.
