n Mental Health Matters - Rebuild by beating the bullying




The huge media reporting by parents, as well as high rates of children seeking therapeutic intervention due to bullying, confirms that bullying is rife and not something new in our schools. Many parents and teachers minimise this problem either because they are not sure how to deal with it effectively, or they don't comprehend the severity of the impact this may have on a child's psycho-social and educational development. Very often, the bully also gets ostracised and punished for bad behaviour, alienating the child even further and perpetuating feelings of rage and anger, without any therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation. So the cycle of bullying continues with no end to this epidemic.
