Western Washington University psychology professor David Sattler says there are emotional, psychological, behavioral, and even legal consequences for the bullies and victims.

It’s at 7:00 p.m. at the Bellingham City Council Chambers.

People can watch on local cable channel 10 or at the City of Bellingham’s website.

He also plans to discuss the messages children receive from video games and reality TV that make cyberbullying appear acceptable.
