Bullying And Adolescent Girls: An Exploration Into The Relationship Between Bullying And Trauma
MetadataShow full item record
Research suggests that adolescent girls who have been bullied often experience correlating depression and anxiety, sleep problems, as well as a lack of self-esteem. In this thesis I offer a detailed exploration into the effects of female adolescent bullying. Research on trauma theory and its practical applications will also be reviewed. The central assertion being made in this thesis is that trauma theory can assist counsellors, teachers, and community workers who are working with adolescent girls who have been bullied as a way of reducing symptoms and long term negative ramifications of existing and past bullying situations. An exploration into the benefits of existing school programs and preventative measures that can be taken in schools and community to reduce harm in bullying situations will also be offered.
