October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month

In support of Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, the National Child Traumatic Stress Network is providing resources for families, teens, educators, clinicians, mental health professionals, and law enforcement personnel on how to recognize, deal with, and prevent bullying (source: NCTSN).

Bullying can be physical, verbal, or over the internet.  Studies have shown that children who have been identified as a bully by age eight are six times more likely to have a criminal conviction by age 24. Children who are bullies may continue to be bullies as adults, and are more prone to becoming child and spouse abusers.

Check out the National Child Traumatic Stress Network’s great website to get more information on how to prevent bullying, how to deal with bullying, and get information and support.
