Bullying is an ongoing pattern of aggressive behaviour that involves a power imbalance. Prolonged periods of bullying act to reinforce negative messages coming from the bullying & from our own sense of blame. These are then exacerbated by fear & anxiety. We go into ourselves & lose our true sense of self.
What we do
Understanding the psychology of bullying is extremely empowering for victims & will arm you in dealing with difficult people in a variety of situations. Working together, we will build a toolkit of strategies to deal with bullies & learn to assert ourselves while ensuring that we do not harbour negative beliefs about ourselves that damage us in the longer term. We will forgive ourselves & remind ourselves that bullying is not our fault. We will cease to see ourselves as victims. We will learn how to diffuse difficult situations, build rapport with others & to assert ourselves in the school environment, home or workplace.
