The Bully's Brain 

Education: Scientist speaks on bullying

kidsbeat1-5.jpg

Meanness isn't new. But bullying is a hot topic for parents and educators. An upcoming educational conference takes the bully by the horns and looks deep into his or her brain. Puppets in Education brings speaker Frank J. Kros to Main Street Landing to look at bullying through the lens of cognitive neuroscience. The morning's topic is "Change Your Language, Change Their Lives"; in the afternoon, it's "Battling the Bully: Brain-Inspired Responses to Bullying." Both are designed to provide practical take-home strategies. "I want feet-on-the-ground tools that I can employ right now," says PiE executive director Deb Lyons. Breaking up the brainy sessions, PiE's puppets model problem-solving skills, respect and compassion in an after-lunch presentation on bullying.

Puppets In Education Annual Conference: Friday, November 22, Main Street Landing, 1 Main Street, Burlington. $100. Info, 860-3349, puppetsineducation.org.
