5 Part Bullying Blog Series

While recent teen suicides and campaigns such as the “It Gets Better Project” have brought national attention to the issue of bullying, it has always been prevalent amongst our youth. At Adolescent Counseling Services and particularly in our On-Campus Counseling Program, our staff frequently sees students who are targeted by bullies because they are different. Whether it’s sexuality, race, social class, physical appearance or for no particular reason whatsoever, bullying is a real problem that has significant and life-threatening consequences for its victims.

As a parent or concerned member of the community, it is easy to feel helpless when these tragic stories of young lives lost flash across the television screen. While there is no immediate answer or solution, we can begin to do our part by learning more about what causes bullying behavior and the variety of ways in which it manifests itself in and outside of our schools. Earlier this year, we posted a 5 part series on bullying. Here are the links in case you missed it:

Bullying Part 1 – Definining Bullying

Bullying Part 2 – The Effects of Bullying

Bullying Part 3 – Bullying Statistics

Bullying Part 4 – Characteristics of Bullies

Bullying Part 5 – What can we do about it?

  1. This is very true, a lot of young people are targeted by bullying. Although we want to end bullying we know it’s a fatal action. My blog focuses on bullying and how teens and young children learn how to deal with it. It includes my experiences and hopefully it will give advice to teens and young children. I include my personal experiences to inform youths that there is a way to ignore bullying. 🙂
