Following the horrendous events of December 14th, 2012: The massacre of innocent children and educators, I have published a full section on what America could do right now, to begin reshifting the tides of deadly gun violence, responsible not just for so many public events, but thousands of suicides, drug deals and domestic homicides. Please join the Joseph Project right now in contacting your representative(s) in Washington and standing opposed to guns.
- Guns don't kill people, but people carrying guns do.

The Joseph Project is an evolving set of documents geared towards today's hot issue of BULLYING and in particular, of CYBER BULLYING and the immediate as well as the long term effects on today's youth.
A fair number of websites, programs and even legal requirements now in some states have been developed to curb or train children away from CYBER BULLYING. The Joseph Project differs from these, focusing on the culture, sociology and psychology behind bullying in general and cyberbullying specifically, as well as addressing some of the concerns that adults need to have about the children who are victims. While I strongly believe that some degree of bullying and being bullied is an aspect of growing up for many children, some children have different capacities to handle it than others do. Identifying children who are at greater risk of injury, may help parents, educators and youth workers to head off some of the long term trauma associated with these activities, as well as curbing the most serious impact, which is suicide of young people.

The Joseph Project is a work in progress, so I hope that its unfinished nature will not prohibit people from using it as a resource. I also want to emphasize that I do not believe the other works on this subject are less important. This is yet another resource in our arsenal to fight the current problem of Cyberbullying as well as training it out of our culture, which I believe must be the long term goal
So, welcome again and please do feel free to email me if you ever have input at firstname.lastname@example.org
Over time I will better organize this site into several sections. For the moment (as we have moved to a new home at webs), all main material will be located here BULLYING & YOUTH SUICIDE and this link is also reachable from the menus above. Thanks for bearing with me during the move.Copyright Mark Snyder Lexington MA
