On today’s episode the bitches discuss a topic that lights absolute rage in both Casey and Liat, Bullying. Bullying is a big freaking deal and guess what, punishing the bully’s behavior after the fact is NOT working. Why the F#%$ do people bully? WTF do we do about it? With the invention of social media and the cyber world, bullying has only increased and intensified. The ladies tie in many behavioral principles that maintain bullying behavior, why people bully, and applied behavior analysis therapy interventions that if implemented correctly could one day create a kind and respectful community. Once again, ABA can change the world!
