We are thrilled to let you know that SuEllen Fried, founder of BullySafeUSA and a Lifetime Member of the Prevent Child Abuse America Board of Directors has written a new article titled "Beyond Bullying: Transforming the Culture of Peer Abuse" - here - for the Journal of Applied Research on Children. We hope you will not only take a look, but let us know how you will use what you've learned in your neighborhoods and communities. Thanks.
From the Abstract:
"Bullying needs to be understood and positioned as a form of child abuse – peer abuse. For too many people, bullying is a benign term. This article will include information collected from a wide-range of researchers and discussions with over 50,000 students that I have facilitated during the past twenty years. The content will focus on new morbidities related to bullying such as depression and suicide, obesity, eating disorders, food allergies, juvenile diabetes, truancy, and substance and alcohol abuse. Making a cultural change in our society will require identified Change Agents, along with recommendations for collaboration, policies, projects and legislation."
