Event Description

Odds Bodkins at

The Cambridge Forum (WGBH/NPR) on

September 21st along with Dr. Elizabeth Englander of Bridgewater State, a premier applied researcher 
on bullying and respected author, especially with regard to relational bullying among girls.
Also on the panel will be Dr. Tracy Vaillancourt, a neuroscientist and anti-bullying expert from Ontario, Canada.
Her research interests include victimization, relational aggression and autism.  I hope she'll also address
basic cognitive deficits in children who have been traumatized when very young, and the neural implications.
In the presence of these two fine scientists, I hope to offer the notion that story can reach into places in the
psyche that non-narrative, punitive and psycho-pharmacological approaches cannot go.
I hope that those of you who are interested in this use of story as an alternative way to reach young, technologically socialized digital natives might find the time to attend the Cambridge Forum and offer your thoughts.
