Young people are victimized by bullies at an alarming rate and the consequences have tragic effects on teens, parents, schools and communities. We hope you can join us on 12/4 as we chat with Dr. Pescara-Kovach’s School Violence Prevention and Intervention  about the research on school violence and bullying. Dr. Pescara-Kovach teaches courses in the field of human development as well as graduate level seminars on the causes, consequences, and prevention of school violence. She is co-chair of U.T.’s Anti-Bullying Task Force and author of “School Shootings and Suicides: Why We Must Stop the Bullies.” You can learn more about Dr. Pescara-Kovach’s research by clicking on the links below.

  1. I have a Q:  Has anyone ever studied the impact of returning to one’s tormentors at a later stage in life (say: 20 years later), and asking them, “why?”. I’m curious if any studies have determined if one should simply hold on to one’s life, if it’s a good one: let sleeping dogs lie; or if there’s any efficacy in revisiting emotional wounds from one’s youth. Everyone grows up, and even bullies tend to gain insights into the misguidedness of their youth. Thanks for any words of wisdom!
