Dr. Castro-Blanco Interviewed on
Chicago Tonight Discussing
Adolescent Bullying, Hazing

As WTTW Channel 11's "Chicago Tonight" reports, five alleged victims have come forward in a growing hazing scandal at a Near Northwest suburban high school--reportedly part of a ritual led by seniors on the University’s soccer team and sanctioned by coaches.  "Chicago Tonight" host Phil Ponce talked with a Chicago lawyer representing the five who have come forward, and with David Castro-Blanco, Ph.D., ABPP, for some broader perspective on adolescent bullying.

Dr. Castro-Blanco, a board-certified clinical psychologist and Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology at the Adler University, discussed how hazing and bullying are about power, intimidation, and insider vs. outsider status, as well as why some minors avoid reporting hazing incidents, and related issues.
