About The Event:

Bullying and cyber bullying impacts communities. This problem has become more prominent in our schools over the last couple of years. As the Internet has become more prominent, there has also been an ever-increasing shift from physical bullying to cyber-bullying. Research shows that 88% of teens who use social media have occasionally observed cruel and mean responses via social networks. Out of this group 15% indicated that they had personally experienced cyber bullying during the previous 12 months while 32% of the learners indicated that they were occasionally beaten by another learner on the way to school, or at school. In the literature there are also several examples of children who have already taken their own lives because of harassment and bullying, whether physical or via the Internet.
The focus of this course will be on the following aspects:
– Actuality in South Africa
– Statistics and scope
– Motives and contributory reasons for bullying
– Characteristics of a typical target
– Characteristics of a typical bully
– If my child is the bully
– Proposed model for every school
– Practical and pastoral guidelines
