Unity, Respect, and Empathy: Recipe for Bullying Prevention?

Unity, Respect, and Empathy: Recipe for Bullying Prevention? | HOMEroom | Scoop.it

The Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights launched an online curriculum on October 1, 2013, for students to learn how to address and stop bullying.

 

Children and teenagers who bully others exhibit “a lack of appropriate concern for the other, commonly considered a lack of affective empathic concern” (Borgwald & Theixos, 2013).

Various efforts have been launched over the years in an attempt to eradicate bullying behaviors and rehabilitate those who engage in it. Some are more effective than others. In a recent article published in Social Influence, the authors argue that the federally instituted “zero-tolerance policies,” which involve systematic punishments and expulsions to deal with bullying are “ineffective, counterproductive, and unjust” (Borgwald & Theixos, 2013). They instead suggest the implementation of “inclusion and empathy training” as an effective approach for integrating those identified as bullies in the school system and community at large.
