Bullying at work, at school, on the internet is far too common in today's society. Many people who experience bullying may fear a comeback, punishment or revenge if they tell someone. People who don't talk about what is happening can become more and more isolated, and their mental health can suffer. John has a deep understanding of humanity and in this talk will focus on the importance of community and compassion in confronting and understanding bullying.
John Longeran entered the prison service in 1968 and in the years that followed he saw human nature at its worst - and often, unexpectedly, at its best. He developed a deep understanding both of human nature and of Irish society. His description of life in the prison service in his book The Governor, is not only a gripping revealing, surprising account but gives a unique insight into modern Ireland.
