Workshop 27 (sold out)
Prevention of Bullying Related Morbidity: A Whole-Community Strategy
There is evolving evidence that bullying is a multifaceted and very toxic form of abuse, prevalent on a global scale, in different social milieus, and across the lifespan. It is linked to a wide range of general and psychiatric morbidity affecting victims and/or perpetrators. This Workshop is designed to raise awareness about the nature of bullying, its link to morbidity and mortality, and strategies for prevention, detection, and treatment. Child and adolescent psychiatrists have a unique responsibility for the detection and treatment of psychiatric antecedents and long-term consequences of bullying, and can effectively advocate for the implementation of public health policies to prevent bullying. Attendees learn strategies to establish partnerships with different segments of the community to prevent bullying, raise community awareness about the nature and toxicity of bullying, and promote school and public health programs that foster mutual respect and prohibit bullying.
