Why Bullying Recovery?
This question gets asked of us often when we tell groups our name. What makes us different than all the other anti-bullying groups out there? It is what is in a name that makes us different Bullying Recovery isn't about anti-bullying, although we certainly work and support on bullying prevention programs. Our founder, Alan Eisenberg, realized many years ago that the emotional toll from youth bullying lasts well into many adult's lives. With that in mind, we have set our goal on the mental and physical recovery from the damage that bullying does. Our message through education, media, links, and speaking is to focus on how bullying damages individuals and how this damage requires a recovery focus that is just now being realized. We are glad that the issue has a name now C-PTSD and we will continue to work to help people understand the damage that bullying does and the support required to help people recover from a youth of bullying and abuse.
Definition of Bullying:
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.
In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:
- An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.
- Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.
Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. (Definition from the website stopbullying.gov)
