The Definition of Bullying — Aggressive behavior that is intentional with an imbalance of power.


Bullying Facts:

Bullying in schools has increased in the past 15 years.

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

4 million youths engage in Bullying each year.

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

2/3 of all students believe that teachers are not willing to intervene to help stop Bullying.

25% of teachers see nothing wrong with Bullying and only intervene in 4% of Bullying Incidents.

Every day close to 200,000 children avoid going to school because they are afraid of being Bullied.

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 can escalate to violence, substance abuse, and suicide. Bullying drags its victims down these dark roads.

Cyber Bullying statistics:  50% of all kids have experienced Bullying online. And half of those cyber-bully victims have had their lives threatened more than once. School personnel need to become more educated on how this technology is hurting students.

There are many different types of Bullying:

Bullying can take the form of:

1.) teasing and mean words
2.) threats and harassment
3.) hitting and physical abuse
4.) mental and emotional abuse
5.) harmful texts – cyber bullying
6.) damaging property and robbery
7.) leaving someone out – exclusion
8.) gossiping and rumors
9.) manipulating others
10.) plotting mischief – sabotage
11.) negative body language/facial expressions
12.) intimidation

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 cruel 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, states 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 — bullying is everywhere.  And bullying does not not just happen in the United States. Visit any playground.  Ask any child — you may be shocked (and horrified) at what you will learn.

Taking the Bully by the Horns is a leader in stopping this violent behavior before it stops you (or your kids).  “Taking the Bully by the Horns” books, bullying programs for staff and students, and anti-bullying workshops all definitively answer the question – What is Bullying? And what can you do to STOP IT.  You’ll also learn how to identify bullies, and how to deal with the effects of bullying.

“Taking the Bully by the Horns” has been awarded honors for saving the lives of children. The books and programs have also received both personal and public praise for making homes and schools safer places, and empowering the victims of bullying. We not only need to stop bullying, but also to pick up the broken pieces left in its wake.

Victims of Bullying would benefit from reading “Taking the Bully by the Horns,” helping them learn to trust again, win back their strength as individuals, and improve their self-esteem. Victims need to understand what happened to them — and why. They also require the right tools to prevent bullying from happening again.

Bullying Prevention needs to be top priority in schools now. Half of all schools do not take bullying prevention seriously which puts them at risk of:

  • losing students,
  • earning a bad reputation,
  • risking the safety of staff and students,
  • and dealing with angry families seeking legal action.
Consequently, the courts are taking the family’s sides due to the hard fact that more and more bullying laws are being passed by state governments – leaving no excuse for any school to not already have bullying programs set into place, and bullying books/information available for counselors and students in their libraries.

2018 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. As part of the 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 offer 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.
