Getting messed with, picked on, teased, or beat up can cause a lot of difficulties such as anxiety, difficulty with anger management, depression, poor school performance, or other problems. These symptoms can be problematic for those who bully others as well. My graduate school research was focused on bullying problems in schools. I conducted research with middle school students to gain a greater understanding of problems related to bullying. Bullying takes place at all ages and even in the workforce with adults, but children and adults don't have to continue dealing with these problems. There is help.
I work with clients to understand why the bullying might be occurring, help them to develop skills to deal with bullying or to stop bullying others, and to create change in their environment (e.g., school, work, family) to put an end to the bullying.
