A recent survey by the U.S. Department of Justice states that one out of every four kids is bullied in some way—and that estimate, according to other reports, is too conservative. Why is bullying so widespread? What are the various forms it can take? How should a bullying victim react to intimidation and physical aggression, or—ideally—avoid becoming a victim in the first place? This video addresses those questions as it looks at the root causes and potential solutions to bullying dilemmas. Studying the verbal, emotional, and social aspects of bullying and cyberbullying as well as physical harassment and attacks, the program also distinguishes between bullying that is typically male and typically female—revealing the wide range of results that all forms can have, from hurt feelings to academic problems to murder and suicide. Dramatizations and expert commentary highlight specific strategies to combat this disturbing challenge to American education and the well-being of its young people.
