03.11.2019 - By Renegade Ape - Psychology, Philosophy, and the Overton Wasteland
Author of "The Psychology of School Bullying" Prof. Peter Smith joins us to examine the causes and motivations for bullying, whether the stereotypical image of the bully as cowardly brute and the victim as lonely misfit hold any truth, the long term effects of bullying on both the victim and the perpetrator, the uncomfortable conclusions of some studies which claim that bullying can be beneficial, and what needs to be done to prevent and deal with bullying in schools.
