Addressing Bullying Behaviours Without Labeling the Individual
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores ways of addressing bullying behaviours without labeling the individual. There is a lot of information in the news, research and the media about helping victims of bullying but there seems to be little information about helping the individual who is perpetrating the bullying behaviour. If these individuals got the support they needed to address their behaviours then there were be less victims of bullying behaviours. Use of the label “bully” shames and blames the person and defines the person in a stereotypical way. By clarifying that bullying are behaviours we remove the label and can separate the responses or actions from the person. After researching many sources this thesis has created an online website called https://www.rerootbullyingbehaviours.com that outlines ways that communities, parents, educators and the workplace can address bullying behaviours.
