About This Event

According to Child Trends, children who are bullied tend to feel unhappy and lonely, have greater difficulty making friends, and are more likely to experience anxiety and depression.  

Bullying is defined as a pattern of behavior intended to cause physical or psychological harm, typically between children with unequal power. Bullying can include physical coercion, hostile teasing, emotional bullying or online harassment. 

Join us for this presentation that will introduce basic concepts and definitions around bullying behaviors. It will address: 

  • signs that a child is being bullied; 
  • indicators that a child may be inclined to bully; 
  • impact on a child who is bullied; and 
  • communication skills that will help youth workers better relate to youth.
