About this event

"REJECT" Documentary: How Rejection Can Lead to Violence, Self-harm, Suicide

In partnership with:

  • Benton County Community Foundation
  • Purdue Extension- Benton County

About this in-person event:

TOPIC: Join us for this no-cost screening of the film “REJECT,” followed by a facilitated discussion about the effects of rejection and ostracism, and ways to overcome and prevent violence and tragedy. The documentary film “REJECT” takes an in-depth look at the science of social rejection, with a solution-oriented focus on the roots of bullying behavior and violent behavior against the self or others. The film includes commentary from experts in psychology, education, medicine, neuroscience, and juvenile justice who have studied “rejection” in their respective fields.

Learning Objectives:

  1. A few minutes experiencing rejection can cause people to report a reduced sense of self-esteem, self-control, belonging and meaningful existence.
  2. Rejection can create surges of anger and aggression; correlations exist between peer rejection and higher rates of delinquency, arrest, violent behavior and substance abuse.
