The Dangers Of Shame And Bullying
Today, I speak with Jonathan Fast, Associate Professor at the Wurzweiler School of Social Work at Yeshiva University. In 2008 Dr. Fast began a new research project focusing on the role of shame in different kinds of violent bullying behavior.
We talk about the causes of bullying and what he thinks would best be the solution to a problem that plagues many of our schools across the US as well as online through social media. I even describe instances of bullying in my own life.
