Bullying

Posted by on in Bullying

This newsletter is a continuation of my last message in which I am attempting to “upgrade” your understanding of the issue of Bullying. To better understand bullying, let’s define it. 

How we define bullying has an enormous impact on whether we see it as “kids will be kids,” a “rite of passage,” or a reflection of a less humane and violent culture that we have created.

Experts in the field of bullying define it as “aggression or harassment that one or more people direct toward another person.” The person who is targeted usually has less social or physical power. Bullying can include physical aggression, taunting, threats and exclusion. Often, these behaviors are targeted toward someone because of his or her sexual orientation, gender, race, or other characteristics that seem “different.”

See the Documentary BullyAt the recent workshop on Parenting Skills “Upgrade” we discussed how life has changed and how things are more stressful for all of us including children. A common theme I’m beginning to see is the need for us to upgrade our understanding of how stress takes us out of relationship with ourselves and others. How the traumatizers not only traumatize others but themselves. We have gotten into negative neurophysiological feedback loops within ourselves and each other.

In the next two newsletters, I want to “upgrade” your understanding of the issue of Bullying because it reflects the tip of the iceberg of violent behavior that can only be shifted through understanding that what is driving the behavior we see is what is beneath the iceberg. We have the ways and means to turn things around; all we need to add is a willingness to join the path others are leading.
