Symposium at NC State Combats Bullying
There could be some help coming for victims of bullying in North Carolina. A symposium at N.C. State today highlights the different types of bullying and what can be done to protect students.
Dr. Tina Hancock is the head of the Department of Social Work at the University and one of the organizers of the event. She says the internet will be a big focus of today's meetings.
"They will be addressing the various forms that bullying can take place from social media and the responsibilities of professionals in schools settings to protect children from cyber-bullying."
Hancock says a documentary on anti-gay harassment called "Bullied: A Student, A School and a Case That Made History" will be screened today. Jamie Nabozny was featured in the film and will keynote the symposium.
