01 Jul We are what we think
How can we stop bullying in the world? Over 60% of kids say they’ve been bullied at school, and for every one “successful” suicide there’s over 100 attempted suicides. In her TEDx Talk, Valerie Mason-John uses her expertise as a bully doctor, and her personal experience as a survivor of bullying, to suggest that bullying does not have to be part of every day life. In this gritty, moving and powerful talk, Valerie gives a clear message that our ‘stinking thinking’ can be the cause of bullying; when we bully ourselves, we will bully everyone around us. She outlines a course of action we can take to work with this global epidemic.
