Insights into how children perceive and experience bullying
Listening to the voice of the child in order to understand bullying more deeply
Many children feel empathy for the plight of victims and anger at the bullying behavior
some (especially boys) also express admiration for peers who bully & contempt for those who are bullied
Stories teach us about values and acceptable forms of behavior - they are an effective medium for challenging bullying since they can educate children about how to deal with bullying, no matter what their role
Children respond differently to awareness-raising interventions.
Therapy gives space to experiment in the world of the imagination with alternative ways of being, behaving and intervening when they encounter or experience bullying.
Provide understanding of the outcomes of bullying — they create role models on how to behave in different contexts.

Stories have a therapeutic role in healing the emotional wounds inflicted by the experience of being bullied.
support the victim!
if you know the person have them spend time with you
tell an adult at home or at school
Discourage students who are bullying and make it known that you think it is wrong

Be sure staff know how to recognize it and that there are ample staff that able to respond

What is our role as future
therapists in prevention?
Applied to a community and community issues, this theory relies on identifying specific behavior patterns and their impact on the whole community.
An intervention based on this theory would help a group to gain insight into each member’s role as it relates to the healthy functionality of the whole.
By doing this, the individual participants can begin to understand and see how they can participate in creating a more adaptive, productive community.
