Bullies, Victims and Bystanders: a Film Screening and Discussion about Bullying and What We Can Do to Address this Public Health

This event is Free but donations are welcome!

Have you ever wondered what it felt like to be bullied? Ever thought you should do something about that person who’s giving Joe or Karen or Tim a hard time? Ever wondered what long term impacts of bullying on both the victim and bully might be? Join PSR on Thursday, November 20th for a screening of the film “Bully,” a documentary which focuses on peer-to-peer bullying in schools across the United States. Following the screening, PSR’s Director of Violence Prevention will lead a round table discussion concerning bullying with expert commentary from Drs. David Hall and Stephen Leff. Dr. Hall has been a classroom teacher for 13 years, a GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) adviser for 9 years and has been featured on CNN and National Public Radio’s Morning Edition. Dr. Leff is an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology in Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and a Psychologist at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He is the Co-Director of the new violence prevention initiative at CHOP.
