“The Bystander’s Dilemma: Bullying and the Perpetuation of Violence”
April 18, 2012 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
Best-selling author Barbara Coloroso will discuss how both parents and teachers can respond to bullying, an aspect of school that she feels "is a life-and-death issue that we ignore at our children's peril." Starting with a bottom-line assumption that "bullying is a learned behavior," Coloroso will explain not only the ways that the bully, the bullied and the bystander are "three characters in a tragic play" but also how "the scripts can be rewritten, new roles created and the plot changed." She will break down the behavior that defines each role, analyze the specific ways that each character can have their behaviors changed for the better and will suggest a range of methods that parents and educators can use to identify bullying behavior and counter it effectively. Most importantly, she will look at ways that bullied children can affirm their dignity and self-worth. Coloroso is an internationally recognized speaker and author in the areas of parenting, teaching, school discipline, non-violent conflict resolution and reconciliatory justice. She is an educational consultant for school districts, the medical and business community, the criminal justice system and other educational associations around the world. Coloroso has served as a classroom teacher, a laboratory school instructor and a university instructor. She is the author of five international bestsellers, including “The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander” and “Extraordinary Evil: A Brief History of Genocide.” Tickets are $8 for HMH members and $10 for nonmembers. Seating is limited and advance registration is required. Visit www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to RSVP online.
