Next Science Café addresses bullying

Published: 18 February 2011

“Bullying: What Do We Know, How Do We Know it, and What We Can Do?” is the title of the next Science Café scheduled for Tuesday, March 8, at 7 p.m. in Stoker’s Basement in the Hotel Donaldson, downtown Fargo.

Media attention on bullying has increased in recent months as a number of suicides have highlighted the significant impact harassment from peers can have on children’s health, well-being and safety. This has led to a great deal of information, and misinformation, being presented to the public. How prevalent is bullying exactly? How does it occur? Who is most at risk and what are the consequences for children’s and adolescents’ development?

Wendy Troop-Gordon, assistant professor of psychology, will discuss how researchers study bullying and will provide an overview of what investigators have learned, including some of her recent findings from data collected in North Dakota and Minnesota. Discussion will focus on what we can do to prevent bullying and help youth who are victimized by peers.
