Working with children who are experiencing or engaging in bullying behaviour
August 10, 2022 - August 10, 2022
Childhood bullying is a complex social issue and our understanding of bullying dynamics has evolved over time. Bullying has significant psychological, physical and socio-economic consequences for children as well as the wider community and these effects can be observed well into adulthood if there is little or no intervention.
Childhood bullying has long been considered an issue for the education system. However, more recently, childhood bullying has been regarded as a public health concern that needs to be addressed by multiple systems, including primary health care and social services. It is important that practitioners in these sectors understand children’s knowledge and perspectives on childhood bullying in order to better support them.
This webinar is designed to support practitioners to:
- understand how childhood bullying affects child mental health
- understand the importance of prevention and early intervention in limiting the effects of childhood bullying in adulthood
- be curious about children’s understanding and perspectives on bullying and why this is important
- explore strategies to work with children experiencing bullying or engaging in bullying behaviour.
This webinar will be of interest to practitioners who work with children and families in a broad range of settings, given the wide reach of bullying involvement. It will be of particular interest to those working with children aged 4–12 years.
