Transcript of Bullying for High School Students

Bystanders are powerful.
In fact, more than half of the bullying
situations would end if bystanders
choose to intervene.
Many situations also involve bystanders—
students who are not directly involved,
but see what is happening.

Who is a Bystander?
A bystander can be affected by bullying.
The bystander is a student or adult who sees or is aware of bullying, but lets it happen without taking any steps to help.

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived
power imbalance.
Bullying includes actions such as
making threats, spreading rumors,
attacking someone physically or verbally,

from a group.
The behavior is often repeated over time.

Bullying stops us from being who we want to be.
It prevents us from expressing ourselves freely, & might even make
us feel unsafe.
If you are bullying,
it is not okay!
If you are being bullied,
please say something!
Tormenting, threatening, harassing, humiliating, embarrassing, or targeting another person using the Internet or mobile devices.
Freshman Orientation

Please say something...
...bullying is
NOT okay!
Think before you Send.
It is important to recognize bullying, in all of its forms, so you can help yourself or prevent others from becoming a victim of bullying.
Bullying does not reflect positively on our school or community & you or your circle of friends.
... ONLY to connect with your friends to share news or insights about events or activities you are involved in or care about.
Protect Yourself
Do not share secrets, photos, or anything that might be embarrassing to you or others, now or in the future.
Make sure you are sharing only with people you know and trust.
Set privacy settings on your
accounts & pay attention to
network changes.
Remember you do not have control over what others forward or post.
Tell a trusted adult
Anyone can become a bully or
a victim of bullying.
Difference vs. Individuality
The traits that make us unique individuals also make us different from others.
We celebrate TRUality ~
individuality, motivation, & esteem.
These impact belonging & can cause jealousy or fear ... leading to bullying incidents.
(e.g., depression, shyness, anxiety, esteem)
Perceived differences
: new to community, established friends

interests, abilities, or limitations
: parents' job or income, financial support
: physical attributes, size, race/ethnicity
Trends & Style
: attire, preferences & social sphere
: circumstances, culture, & upbringing
: religion, culture, sexuality
: disability or emotionality
Superficial physical traits, intrinsic personal preferences or interests, & developed abilities or limitations.
Become More Than a Bystander

Respect Individuality
Importance of Bystanders
Everyone knows bullying situations involve a student who is targeted
& a student doing the bullying.
Learn about privacy settings &
review them often.
More Tips for Teens
Don’t share your password.
Only accept friend requests from
people you know.
Don’t post anything you wouldn’t want your parents, teachers, or future employer to see.
Be authentic. The real you is better than anything you could pretend.
If you are being treated disrespectfully, ask the person to stop & block/unfriend them.
3. The kid(s) doing it have more "power"
Teens described bullying as,
"when someone tries to make you feel less about who you are as a person, & you aren't able to make
it stop."
It is bullying when:
1. One person is intentionally hurting or harming another with words or behavior.
2. The person being hurt has a hard time defending him/herself.
(they are older, bigger, stronger, more social status, ganged up, etc.).
"...the end of bullying begins with you--with each student being willing to say that bullying will not be accepted and that everyone has a right to be and feel safe
at school!"
