BULLYING AWARENESS AND PREVENTION

“Bullying is not just a buzzword co-opted by the media to drive ratings from frightened school children and their worried parents. Bullying is a serious problem that has far-reaching implications for the person being bullied—and for the bully as well. In this guide, readers will find information on what bullying is, how it impacts people, and where victims can get help. In addition, there is information on the mental health industry’s response to bullying and why psychologists are uniquely equipped to handle this issue.”

VIOLENCE AWARENESS & PREVENTION GUIDE

“No human is immune to violence or the effects of aggressive behavior, whether it is against them, a colleague, friend, family member, or partner. Violence doesn’t only affect the victim; it reverberates throughout all of their personal and social circles. Abusive behavior manifests in a number of ways, ranging from sexual and physical abuse seen in teen dating and marriages to school bullying and hate crimes against the LGBTQ community. The following guide identifies different forms of violence, offers information on how to recognize abuse, and provides resources to help victims find support services.”
