Dartmouth/Hitchcock Medical Center
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
With bullying, sexual harassment, and credible death threats on the rise, school is becoming less about learning and more about fear. This program from The Doctor Is In thoroughly examines violence among children and teens of both sexes. Innovative preventive measures yielding impressive results at Bartle Elementary in New Jersey and Lebanon Junior High in New Hampshire are featured. In addition, psychologist Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence, presents his theories on improving the school environment and James Garbarino, author of Lost Boys, talks about the pressures that can lead to extreme acts of violence at school-even murder. A Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Production.
