Joyce Velt Shares the Short- and Long-Term Impacts of Bullying

Bullying can take on many forms and can happen at any time—whether a child is on the playground or on their smartphone. And, sadly, it’s common: as many as 20% of kids and teens report being bullied, but fewer than half of the kids who said they’re bullied report it to someone of authority.

What’s the impact of bullying? Is there a way to tell if your child is being bullied and how they’re being targeted? How can parents and caretakers prevent or stop these harmful behaviors?

In this previously recorded session, Joyce Velt, LICSW, explains the effects of bullying on mental health, discusses how it can impact relationships in the short- and long-term, and answers audience questions about how we can help kids and teens feel included and welcome.
