Bullying Part II

Engagement Description


There isn't consensus among experts as to why children bully. Research continues into this specific form of aggression that erodes the fabric of our school culture and places children at risk of emotional, social and academic delays. Here we begin to explore some of the hypothesis of why children segregate and oppress others, to gain a better appreciation of what to look for and how to intervene as professionals.

Learning Objectives

  1. Define bullies and victims as children who represent polarities of emotional and social dis-regulation.
  2. Enter the world of a 'victim' and 'bully' to appreciate the experiences that drive their social roles.
  3. Begin to explore avenues to make contact with both ends of this continuum.
