Porter, a 25-year veteran counselor and administrator in schools from the pre-K-level to graduate school, claims that current anti-bullying programs overreact to "normal childhood aggression." Going even further, she holds that zero-tolerance policies are unrealistic and that the too-broad definition of bullying inhibits resilience and causes children to feel victimized even when they haven't been. She presents an original four-pronged approach as an alternative to current methods of dealing with childhood aggression in students age 17 and under. The author holds a PhD in clinical psychology.
