Jennifer Fraser, best-selling author and award-winning educator, has a PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of Toronto. Her online courses and workshops provide dynamic lessons in the impact neuroscience has on personal development and culture change.
Her previous book, Teaching Bullies: Zero Tolerance on the Court or in the Classroom (Motion Press, Aug. 8, 2015), explores what happens when the bully is a teacher or coach. Her new book, The Bullied Brain: Heal Your Scars and Restore Your Health (Prometheus Books, April 1, 2022), delves into how bullying affects the brain and how the brain can heal. In our conversation this week Jennifer recounts her personal story around bullying with her own son, and gives us some great steps to take to both stop the cycle, and heal ourselves and those we love.
