NHPW Series- Why Students Haze
September 6, 2012 at 2PM EST
Originally Recorded: September 29, 2011
Hazing incidents are sometimes attributed to ""a few bad apples"" or a situation that ""just got out of hand."" In reality, hazing is typically the result of multiple factors that interact over time to generate this harmful behavior. If we misunderstand the causes of hazing, we are likely to implement strategies that are either ineffective or insufficient. This webinar will examine the social and psychological dynamics of hazing and ""move upstream"" in the chain of events that give rise to hazing. It will provide a framework for the development of strategies that hold promise for changing the group and institutional practices and cultures that intentionally or unintentionally foster hazing.
Audience and Learning Outcomes Administrators, staff, faculty, coaches, students, and volunteers that work with organizations and teams are invited to join us for this program that will help participants understand:
1. The factors at multiple levels (individual, group, institutional, and societal) that interact to result in hazing.
2. The phases of development of hazing.
3. Potential points of intervention that hold promise for reducing the risk of hazing.
