Understanding Child & Adult Bullying
Bullying in the UK is reaching epidemic proportions and is a very real problem for a large number of children, university students and people in work. Bullying also impacts relationships, marriages, organisations and churches. However, most people would struggle to admit to themselves that they are being, or have been, bullied, let alone face the shame that bullying is abuse, and tell someone.
This one-day workshop looks at the different forms of bullying in both childhood and adulthood, as well as the physical and emotional impact on the target. We will discuss why people bully and why children who are bullied become more likely to be targeted as adults.
An important aspect of the day will be exploring ways to change styles of relating, breaking the bullying cycle and recovering from the trauma of being bullied.
The workshop is led by Helena Wilkinson, author and international speaker, who has with 25 years experience working with sufferers. She lectures internationally on eating disorders, self-harm, bullying and related subjects, and is the author of 11 books. These include ‘Insight into Child & Adult Bullying’, which grew out of her own experience of bullying in addition to counselling many people who have been bullied at different stages in their lives.
