From Wedgies to Widgets: Bullying in the Age of Technology

Bullying is an age old issue that has found a new platform: cyberspace. What once necessitated bold face-to-face interaction now lurks in the shadowy solace of cellphones and computers. It begins at school, on the playground, and at GOYA but now continues into our homes and safe spaces. How do we recognize a bully and a victim? How do we respond as parents, teachers, or ministers? How do we communicate with our children about this very serious and timely issue? These, and more, are all questions panelist address during this interactive panel discussion at the 44th Clergy-Laity Congress.
