Program Description:

In an ideal world, things would be easy. People would be nice to each other and problems, when they arise, would be handled respectfully. In the real world, things are different. People can be mean and aggressive and harassment is all too common. The problem is that any attempt to end harassment usually results in retaliation. This is so common that laws have had to be enacted to prohibit it. But, as we all know, laws aren’t enough.

Harassment occurs in many forms; and almost always, attempts to get it to stop results in some form of retaliation. This program will discuss the science of behavioral conditioning so you can better understand the harassment dynamic and why retaliation occurs so that you can understand what has to happen to make it stop. ​
