What is Bullying?
Definition: Repeated, unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance.

Evolution: Common in school, but as internet and media has become prevalent in society, it has spread to the internet.

Safe Space

Parental Intervention

Peer Intervention

Safe Space

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.
Parental Intervention
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.
