What is Bullying?
Definition: Repeated, unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance.
Types: 3 basic types
1. Verbal Bullying
2. Social Bullying
3. Physical Bullying
Evolution: Common in school, but as internet and media has become prevalent in society, it has spread to the internet.
At Chapman: Safe Space is a multi-faceted educational intervention supported by the division of Student Affairs that supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and ally (LGBTQIA) campus community members. The program impacts Chapman University both environmentally and culturally through its commitment to creating a welcoming environment for all LGBTQIA community members.
Peer and Mentor Intervention
"Bystanders are the most pivotal group of bullying influencers since youth are so heavily influenced by their peers according to Slaby, Wilson- Brewer, and Dash (2011)."
Best Solution: Mix of All Three
"Active Involvement from every audience"
Other Facts and Stats
3 basic types of bullying -> Verbal, Social and Physical, but with technology more types are arising including cyberbullying
Bullying affects EVERYONE involved in the long run, not just the bullied.
Best solution: A mixture of parental intervention, safe space, and peer/ mentor intervention; witnessing and not doing anything is just as bad as the bullying itself.
Kids who are bullied
Increased depression and anxiety, commonly persists into adulthood

Drug and alcohol abuse in adolescence and as adults
Get into fights, vandalize property, and drop out of school

have increased use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs
have increased mental health problems, including depression and anxiety
miss or skip school
Why is bullying an issue?
Bullying effects EVERYONE, not just the bullied.
over 3.2 million students are bullied each year
Nearly 9 out of 10 LGBT youth reported being harassed at school in the past year due to their sexual orientation
1 in every 10 students who drop out of school do so due to bullying
75% of school shootings have been linked to bullying and harassment
For Peers and Mentors:
Don't just be a bystander
Be a support system for friends/mentees experiencing bullying

"Michigan's Anti-Bullying Law"
Detroit Free Press
49/50 States have some sort of legislation
Mentors and celebrities are powerful figures that have the ability to influence many individuals
These role models provide hope for those who are struggling
Programs such as "Safe Space" allow students a safe environment and possibly a third party or outsider's perspective
Active involvement on every part would make bullying inexcusable
Create a lot of awareness
Celebrities are seen as detached figures, not members of our community...they might not "understand" what the individual is going through
Some might still see certain stipulations about asking for help in a public realm
Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology.
Help kids understand bullying
Keep lines of communication open
Encourage kids to do what they love
Model treating others with kindness and respect
Monitor and teach proper internet use
