Fresh Perspectives on Bullying: A Conversation with Author Emily Bazelon
Many of us believe that bullying is more rampant today than in previous decades But is that true? And how do technology and social media shape bullying behavior and its impact today? Most important, what should we be doing to support a deeper understanding of – and more effective response to – this complex problem? Marti & Erin explore these and other questions with Emily Bazelon, Senior Editor of Slate and frequent guest on Comedy Central’s Colbert Report, who has written a fresh and thoughtful book on bullying, Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy.
