Bullying is a topic that seems to be on everyone’s mind these days. Rightfully so, bully victims are up to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University. By definition bullying is any unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived imbalance of power. The aggressive behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, or attacking someone physically or verbally.
Additionally, the complexion of bullying has changed in the wake of social media. Join Don and Christina as they take a closer look at the issues surrounding modern bullying in this month’s installment of “Off the Script.”
