Books and bullying might be seen as an odd word pair. But anyone who remembers encountering a bully in school or in childhood knows from personal experience that a safe environment facilitates better learning. Associate professor, Melissa Heath and Graduate Student, Katie Smith, both in BYU’s School of Psychology, join Rachel today to talk about a significant study they are pursuing. Their concern relates to bullying in the schools and approaches they have developed in combatting it. The idea is to build resilience and teach coping skills to our children.
