Several recent tragedies have focused the attention on the growing trend of "bullycide," the term that describes those desperate instances of young people taking their own lives to escape from relentless harassment by their peers. This timely video follows multiple storylines to deliver the message that bullying can have enormous and tragic consequences. Viewers learn the facts surrounding two recent bully-provoked teen suicides. Commentary from Dr. Joel Haber, a clinical psychologist and recognized national expert on bullying, identifies various forms of bullying, from obvious physical assaults to more indirect forms such as cyberbullying, spreading rumors, exclusion or verbal taunts. This unforgettable program includes important tips for dealing with bullies and urges students to join together and become proactive defenders of victims before they reach their breaking point. Most importantly, it opens the door for an important dialogue among all viewers, those who may be participants, witnesses or victims of peer intimidation and hostility.
