Featured in the Huffington Post, National Workplace Bullying Coalition, Toronto Star, Changing the Game Project, National Alliance for Youth Sports, and Edutopia along with many other media outlets and foundations dedicated to ousting the bullying and abuse paradigm, Jennifer advocates for the rights of students and individuals to learn in an abuse-free environment.
Since the publication of her third book in 2015, Teaching Bullies: Zero Tolerance on the Court or in the Classroom, Jennifer has been writing articles, giving interviews and presentations across North America on the subject of abuse and bullying’s impact on brains.
With a PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of Toronto, Jennifer’s approach to the issue of bullying and abuse is research-based. She draws on investigative journalism in order to examine why our present systems fail to identify and contain bullying and abuse. She draws on psychology and neuroscience to stress how harmful and scarring bullying and abuse are to brains.
She also works with Anderson Software reporting which she believes is the best way to keep students and employees safe, as well as organizational leaders informed. She has a forthcoming book entitled Brain Scars: The Neuroscience of Bullying and its Implications for Educators which is co-authored with Dr. Rick Jetter.
