Transcript of Bullying

What is Bullying?
Bullying is a form of aggressive behavior in which someone intentionally and repeatedly causes another injury or discomfort.
Types of Bullying:
Physical/Verbal Bullying:
We interviewed Officer Tracy for more information:

Social Bullying:
Cyberbullying is using the internet to hurt someone.
Easier to hide online
Harder for the victim to get away from the bully
Easier to be mean online because the bully cannot see the pain they're causing.
What to do if you're a victim:
Don't be mean back
Save evidence
Tell someone
Block the bully
Effects of Bullying:
Use of alcohol and drugs
Not want to go to school
Bad grades
Low self esteem
Suicidal thoughts or actions
Bryanna Biddy, MacKenzie Darcy, Adriana Antonucci
Definition: using hurtful words with the intent to harm someone. This includes:
inappropriate sexual comments
threatening to cause harm
Our action plan is to have an anti-bullying day here at WHS. We would work together with the ABC Club to organize this day, first conferencing with Mr. Dimeo. Each grade would work as a team to complete tasks during the day that has to do with bullying, such as creating a banner for each house office. Also, on that day, each class would connect the subject to bullying to raise awareness.
In our class...
56% have been bullied
31% have been bullied online
44% have been threatened
0% have been bullied based off of their sexual orientation
56% have felt personally victimized by someone
Verbal and Physical Bullying
2 out of 3 teens are verbally or physically harassed each year.
Definition: hurting a person's body or possessions. This includes:
Hitting, kicking, pinching
Tripping, pushing
Taking or breaking someone's belongings
Making rude and disrespectful gestures
DEFINITION: Social bullying (also referred to as relational bulling) is a person purposely trying to hurt someone's social reputation or acceptance
Techniques used by social bullies:
Lying and spreading rumors
Excluding the victim socially
Encouraging others to socially exclude someone
Many people use their power (strength, high position in the workplace, or popularity) to bully others
Verbal and cyberbullying can be used during social bullying (spreading rumors through the use of social media and calling them hurtful things)
Social Bullying
A person who is present at an instance of bullying who may or may not intervene.
Active Bystander:
a person who observes a conflict such as bullying and decides to take action by telling an adult or confronting the bully
only 11% confront or try to stop the bully
over half the time, the bullying is usually stopped within 10 seconds of a bystander taking action
Inactive Bystander
this person observes the bullying, but doesn't make any efforts to stop it
usually don't get involved because they don't think it's their business, don't want to become a target, or think they'll make matters worse
90% of people want to stop the bullying, but don't know how
they end up ignoring the bullying and doing nothing, is that right? Would you want someone to do that to you?
Make the right choice. Be an Active Bystander. If you see bullying, speak up.
This can also be referred to as psychological bullying because words have a strong effect on people mentally.
This is most common in children.
Victims often struggle to defend themselves.
