Thank You!

beating the bullyIt has been a pleasure to be writing “Beating the Bully” this past year! Sadly, it has come to an end for the blog but I hope not for all our efforts to combat this issue. 2012 was the year bullying and it’s impact on our lives came into the foreground. There was an international dialogue about how to address bullying, how bullying has affected our children, ourselves and how we differentiate between bullying and normative conflict between young people. 

While there have been no easy answers to solve this pervasive problem the attention bullying has gotten in new research about the psychology of bullying, in the news and mass media is a start.

Thank you for reading the blog and I hope to (virtually) meet you all again in the future!
