Children Who Bully: Strategies for Recognizing and Responding to Them

Young people who bully often master the art of blending in with the crowd, flying under an adult’s radar and wreaking havoc in subtle ways. In fact, many socially aggressive kids actually top an adult’s “what a nice kid!” list and make their way into their victims’ inner circle before revealing their true intentions. Blink and even the most astute observer may miss the child’s hostile actions the first few times around. This workshop will provide information, activity ideas, and clear-cut strategies for what adults can do to understand and change relational bullying in schools, treatment programs, communities, and families.
