What is Bullying?
Case Study Time
Why do we document?
Methods of Intervention
How you can actively address bullying in your community
– a. Bullying – the use of force or coercion to abuse or intimidate others. The behavior can be habitual and involve an imbalance of social or physical power.
– are actions that use information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm another or others. . Examples of what constitutes cyber bullying include:
i. communications that seek to intimidate
ii. control, manipulate
iii. put down
iv. falsely discredit
v. humiliate the recipient.
- may or may not be a friend of the target, but he or she is aware that the bullying is happening. Bystanders can demonstrate leadership by making an effort to stop the bullying or seeking help. Bystanders can be silent bullies if they do not make an effort to end or report the bullying.
- The term bystander effect refers to the phenomenon in which the greater the number of people present, the less likely people are to help a person in distress. When an emergency situation occurs, observers are more likely to take action if there are few or no other witnesses.
Documenting incidents of bullying within residence or online between residents is imperative, as it is with any incident. The purpose of documentation is for the RLCs to have sufficient reason to bring a student in for a meeting.
Incident Reports allow RLCs to become aware of the situation and reach out to the target and offer supports that they might need.
Without incident reports it is difficult for RLCs to apply proper judicial sanctions that can potentially put an end to bullying.
For each method of intervention please share your ideas of pros and cons with the group.
Offers the target(s) and opportunity to address the community
Can address the bystander effect
The floor sees that bullying is actively addressed
Can make the target(s) feel singled out
Could involve unrelated people
Requires the target(s) to be very willing and brave
Can be preemptive or responsive
Can be as specific as you wish

Can allow the effects of the behaviour to be clearly communicated
Could include restorative justice principles
Does not publicly shame the bully
Does not "out" the target(s)
Is no visible to rest of the community
if the target(s) is not involved, it may not address all of the effects of the behaviour
Does not rely on reporting
Intervener can take on the effects instead of the target(s) ex. "Even if she isn't upset that you are saying that, I am!"
Can take ownership away from the target(s) in the event they wanted to address the behaviour
We document because we care!
