Drama and Dialogue: “The Bystander’s Dilemma,” the second in a series on changing the culture of bullying, will be on Tuesday, April 10, at 7 p.m. at the Princeton Public Library. It will explore the internal conflicts experienced by bystanders who witness bullying or other mistreatment. Through interactive drama and discussion, adults and young people will learn how to handle bullying situations in the community and in schools. The program will address such issues as the role race can play in a bullying incident – and the potential consequences of intervening. This can be particularly useful for parents to help them support their children who may be bystanders.
The program’s scenarios will be enacted by members of NIOT and Princeton High School students of Corner House’s GAIA program. Mary Saudargas, GAIA facilitator; and Elizabeth Casparian, executive director of HiTOPS will serve as program guides.
The library is in the Sands Library Building at 65 Witherspoon St.in PrincetonBorough. Convenient parking is available on neighboring streets and in the borough-operated Spring Street Garage, which is adjacent to the library.
