The Psychological Toll Of Childhood Bullying Can Persist For Decades

The Psychological Toll Of Childhood Bullying Can Persist For Decades | Bullying | Scoop.it

A new study in the American Journal of Psychiatry finds what others had hinted at but not quite arrived at: That the effects of childhood bullying can last not only through adolescence and young adulthood, but also through middle age. Earlier studies had shown the negative psychological and social effects of bullying to be evident into a person’s 20s, but the new research tracked the psychological health and cognitive function of once-bullied kids till they were 50. And the effects of bullying – particularly of severe bullying – affected a person’s well-being in a great number of ways. All the more reason, the authors urge, to take bullying just as seriously as we would any other form of childhood abuse.

School anti-bullying program expanding in B.C. -  government will provide $800,000 | Bullying | Scoop.it

The B.C. government is expanding an anti-bullying program in schools across the province, targeting children in kindergarten and pre-school.

Premier Christy Clark says the Roots of Empathy program is recognized internationally as a way to teach young kids core values like respect, kindness and empathy.

"Children deserve to grow up without fear of bullying," said Clark on a visit to Morley Elementary School in Burnaby. "The Roots of Empathy program delivers on that promise and helps teach young children how to act towards each other."
