Bullying in schools has become increasingly more violent. Bullying is frequently a factor in school related deaths.

Over 3 million youths are victims of moderate to severe Bullying each year.

Bullying stories in the news and Bullying articles in publications have become more frequent and common since the Columbine school shootings that left 13 students dead. Teasing — leading to violence, substance abuse, and suicide — is the dark road that Bullying takes its victims down.
There are many different types of Bullying:
Bullying can take the form of:
Most children are statistics of bullying fitting into 1 of 3 categories:
a.) the bullies
b.) the bullied
c.) those who stand watching and do nothing. (bystanders of bullying)
Many bullies claim to have once been the victims of bullying themselves. We need to prevent this ugly endless cycle.
Almost 75% of students report bullying as a frequent occurrence. And those are only the bullying incidences that are actually reported. Imagine all the victims of bullying who are suffering silently.
Bully Police USA, a supporter of Taking the Bully by the Horns, state that 3 out of 4 students reported that they are bullied. 90% of students said bullying caused them academic, social, and emotional problems.
But you don’t need statistics on bullying to see what a serious issue bullying has become. Look around you — bullying is everywhere. And bullying does not not just happen in the United States. Visit any playground. Ask any child– you may shocked (and horrified) at what you will learn.

2013 Bullying Course:”Bullying: Understanding, Assessment, Intervention, and Treatment”
Although the US has been slow to engage and work with the issue of bullying, it is now taking center stage. We are recognizing the long term emotional consequences of this behavior and beginning to intervene in a comprehensive manner. Clinicians are critical in this effort as we have the unique opportunity to work directly with the individuals involved in this trauma. It has been a privilege to work in helping you with this serious issue as this growth occurs.
In this course we will review literature and research with extensive links and readings, including excerpts from the course. As part of this course, you will also receive the eBook “Taking the Bully by the Horns” by Kathy Noll and Jay Carter, PhD, which is printable for your use and valuable when working through these issues with the bully, bullied and bystanders. We will also include tools and questions for self reflection within the course. We will be beginning course specific blogs so that clinicians may share their thoughts and tools that work with others.
We always welcome ongoing feedback from our participants and are here to help you attain knowledge and achieve your goals.
