The Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable will present the new documentary film Reject at 7:00 pm in the Lincoln-Sudbury High School Auditorium. (Admission is free.) Reject offers a powerful look at the cost of social rejection at a young age and a timely analysis of real life educational techniques to nurture positive social development from pre-school age up. The film highlights some of the devastating consequences for victims of chronic, repeated rejection over time. Not only is rejection hurtful, but it has the potential for erupting as violence. A study of the backgrounds of school shooters found that the majority were victims of ostracism.
Individuals involved with the lives of children are welcome: teachers, coaches, leaders of youth activities in faith communities and so forth. This film is a great opportunity for parents, educators, and students interested in social development and education, to think together and look ahead. Please visit www.rejectfilm.com to view the trailer for the film and endorsements from administrators who have used the film for staff professional development programs. We would love nothing more than to fill the very large space we have reserved!
