Author: Garbarino, James
Description: Dr. Garbarino's presentation focused on how a school's social system plays a decisive role in the process of bullying, sexual harassment and emotional violence in the lives of teenagers. One core message is to avoid the temptation to see bullying as a personal problem and instead to always look for the workings of the school as a social system. This implies a need for strategies for responding that include character education, better feedback from students, and more explicit demonstration of adult caring in the school. The goal is policies and programs that seek to change the culture of the school, such as by changing "bystander" behavior through character education.
