This October marks the 10th anniversary of National Bullying Prevention Month, a campaign instituted by the PACER Center to bring communities together to educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention. While the PACER Center focuses on the needs of children and youths, bullying is a social issue that plagues many age groups and social settings in our world. Many of UTC Library’s online resources can assist with research on the many forms of bullying and can help provide context for why we should stand up against bullying.
Most people associate bullying as an issue with young people in school. Bullying, however, can occur among all age groups at all levels of education. Some resources available include articles like “Prevention of Bullying in Early Educational Settings: Pedagogical and Organisational Factors Related to Bullying” in the European Early Childhood Education Research Journal and “Bullying at a University: Students’ Experiences of Bullying” in Studies in Higher Education. The ebook “Keeping the Child Healthy and Safe” has ideas about how to create environments free of bullying.
Bullying is also not limited to occurring at school, as evidenced by ’Yes, We Have an Anti-Bullying Policy, But…’ HR Professionals’ Understandings and Experiences with Workplace Bullying Policy” in Communication Studies and the ebook “Managing Workplace Bullying.” Issues of bullying online and in the workplace are just as prevalent.
Together, we can work toward removing bullying from our schools, our workplaces, and the places we inhabit online. We can be inspired programs like Stop Bullying Now!, featured in the article “Stop Bullying Now! A Federal Campaign for Bullying Prevention and Intervention” also from the Journal of School Violence. By better understanding what bullying is, how and where it occurs, and how people work to prevent it, we can join the worldwide effort toward stamping out bullying.
