London, UK (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Dr. Lisa Pasch, an expert psychologist, talks to NoBullying.com about the Scope of Bullying in an interview released today.
Dr. Lisa Pasch is a clinical psychologist with specialty areas in working with children, adolescents, and young adults. Additionally, she has concentration areas within family therapy and addictions. She is an expert in the field of bullying and has given lectures on the topic to a variety of locations.
When it comes to whether bullying is increasing or not, Dr. Pasch said "While all the technological advances in society have brought along wonderful additions, they have also allowed for the inception of Cyber-Bullying. While the new technologies have not really introduced new psychological threats, they have made it harder to protect our youth in particular from those risks."
She defines bullying as "a subtype of aggression directed toward the interpersonal dominance of another person. Someone is being bullied when (s)he is repeatedly and over time exposed to negative actions (aggressive behavior) on the part of one or more other person(s)."
As for defining those negative actions, Dr. Pasch says "negative action constitutes a person intentionally inflicting or attempting to inflict injury or discomfort onto someone else. It is important to remember that aggression can be physical (overt) or relational (covert). Cyber-bullying can fall under either category."
Treating an older bully may create a more difficult challenge as their behaviors are likely more strongly rooted at that point. The basic principles, however remain the same. Teaching empathy, perspective taking and more appropriate social skills continue to be the most important tasks.
Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of Treze, said "We are thrilled about the vast array of experts in the field willing to share their knowledge and experience with us to combat bullying." He added "This Movement against Bullying needs to gain more momentum and that only happens with sharing knowledge and experience and truly empowering children to stand up for their safety online and everywhere."
Mulligan encourages experts from all over the world to join the Movement against Bullying by contributing to NoBullying.com via media(at)nobullying(dot)com.
He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and off line.
