Bullying is a significant and preventable serious public matter that unfortunately is common, especially among our youth. Did you know that according to www.stopbullying.gov, 31 percent of children between the ages of 10 and 16 reported being bullied at school, and 15 percent of them were bullied via a computer or e-mail?
As a nurse, you play a critical role in identifying and aiding children at risk of bullying. By collaborating with other health care professionals, family members, educators, and community leaders, you can help prevent bullying and intervene to meet the needs of the youth affected by it.
The Taking Action: Policies and Politics of Childhood Bullying webinar will analyze how federal, state, and local governments have collaborated with private groups to propose and implement new prevention programs focusing on childhood bullying. After attending this webinar, nurses will be able to:
- Identify four components of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention definition of bullying.
- Recognize health and behavioral consequences associated with bullying.
- Explain and use strategies that nurses might take to prevent bullying or intervene after bullying occurs.
Join us for this special webinar. Listen as Sally S. Cohen, the 2014–2015 distinguished Nurse Scholar-in-Residence at the Institute of Medicine, shares her expertise on national child health policy. Because childhood bullying has been known to cause lifelong health problems in both victims and aggressors, the time to learn about this significant issue is now!
