Bullying: A School Encounter | Part 2 The Analysis with Dr. David Perrodin
If you are here for the first time, this is part 2 of a 2 part story so please go back and listen to part 1, episode 16, otherwise you might be lost. I want to start of today's episode by saying thanks to those who posted their comments on the Facebook bullying discussion group as well as those who have reached out to me telling me about how they perceived my interaction with the school counselor. There were a few people that took the counselors side, some that took my side, and some that teetered back and forth. I considered many different ways to share that episode with you but ultimately decided that I wanted to try to deliver the episode as straight forward as possible, without interjecting much emotion. I wanted to deliver just the facts of what happened. Based on the feedback so far, I believe the episode had it's intended effect. I really do appreciate all of the feedback!
The last episode was very emotional for me, I seriously considered whether or not to release it to you. After a few months of debating, I decided to ask Dr. Perrodin if he would take the raw audio and analyze it. I knew his over 20 years experience in this arena would help me frame how the discussion went. After he said yes, I knew I had to share this insight, that was the moment I decided to share this with you. When I sent the audio to Dr. Perrodin, he didn't have any knowledge of the events leading up to the conversation, he just had the audio of the conversation. So his analysis is solely based on the conversation.
