Transcript of Bullying

Today was not a good day. Some kids from class started picking on me and called me names. -Did you know that 1 out of every 4 students has been or will be bullied sometime during their young life?

-According to ABC News, 160,000 kids stay home each day from school because they are afraid of being bullied.

-Were you aware that there are 15 to 25 reported incidents of bullying-related suicide every year? Some call this "bullycide". I don't understand why they keep doing this. Don't they know how much it hurts my feelings? Direct (more common with male bullies)
*Physical- hitting, kicking, punching, etc.
*Verbal- name calling, put-downs (77% of students partake in this type).

Indirect (more common with female bullies)
*Relational (Social)- exclusion from certain groups, spreading lies about someone (gossiping/rumors).

Cyber (mixture of both direct and indirect)
*Personal aggression occurring through electronics. About 42% of students and 80% of high school students partake in this type. Different Types of Bullying: Thankfully, one of my teachers told me that we're having a special class tomorrow: its called ABC (the Anti-Bullying Campaign). *The anti- bullying campaign (ABC) is a class that willl meet once a week for one hour, and will be taught to students in grades 1 through 12.
*ABC will flow differently for different age groups--the lower grades will be focused more on name calling and physical bullying while the higher grades will focus on cyber bullying and bullycide ( the term for bullying that results in one committing suicide).
*ABC will provide information on what bullying looks like, what victims of bullying should do, and how to become an ally against bullying. What is ABC? The mission of ABC is to help resolve our nation's (and world's) bullying crisis and to help our youth become more culturally competent. Supplemental Material for ABC: *ABC will utilize the Cool, Calm, and Confident workbook by Lisa Schab in grades 1- 5.
*Students in grades 6-9 will be using the Charlotte Guillain book, Coping with Bullying.
***For all grades, we will be utilizing the What Works When handbook by Ann Vernon for all grades. No Bully System "The No Bully System is a step-by-step process and set of interventions to prevent and stop bullying in schools. It guides school leaders and staff through a series of interventions for responding to bullying and harassment, depending on the severity of the incident. When severe or persistent bullying occurs, teachers facilitate Solution Teams, where the target’s peer group and the bully come together to stop the bullying. Teachers follow up with Solution Coaching to help students entrenched in the role of bully or target relate more skillfully with their peers". External Bullying Factors
(the reason given for bullying) Socialogical
Cultural Norms
Power & Control
Estabalishing & Maintaining a social hierarchy
Benefits and drawbacks of retaliation and revenge
On-line communication
Social Media
Mobile Phone - texting Imagine if from an early age students:
were taught to appreciate differences and value individuals
were equipped with the tools to see the world as more than just their small corner
could learn how identity is shaped in positive ways
learned early on that privilege impacts the world
were equipped to be allies to disenfranchised groups
learned affirming language as opposed to language that harms
understood how religious, gender, ethnic, racial, class, sexual orientation (at an appropriate age), disability and age identities are shaped by cultural and societal influences. Imagine a school in which the staff:
were all trained to watch for signs of bullying.
counselors were supported in their efforts to hear kids.
had continuing education classes to learn about new ways to spot children in trouble. Are there any programs already be used to fight against bullying? No Bully began in San Francisco in 2003 as a collaboration of educators, psychologists and lawyers committed to preventing the current generation of students from enduring the bullying that they experienced when they were in school. Today, No Bully is helping schools in California, Oregon, Washington, Texas and beyond stop bullying and transform into learning communities which are inclusive of everybody. Internal Factors
(the unconscious reasons) Biological
reflect the developing nervous system in childhood adolescence and the impact of neurobiological development on issues of impulsivity, the inability to foresee consequences, the difficulty understanding other perspectives and controling behaviors and emotions.
subconsicious issues of safety and security.
seeking attention and the formation of a personal identity.
