Dr. Chloe Carmichael, with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Long Island University, talks to NoBullying.com today about Adult Bullying.
Her work focuses on stress management, relationship issues, self esteem, and coaching.
When asked about bullying, she commented that, “The advent of social media has emboldened bullies, and given them more clout. Moreover, the permanent record of the internet makes the wounds more enduring.”
When it comes to Cyber Bullying, Dr Chloe said, “Bullying can now occur even when two people aren’t in the same room. This means that a child being bullied can’t even breathe a sigh of relief after the school day ends. The evening hours, which may have been a respite in the past, can now be filled with new text messages and online postings that continue the bullying around the clock.”
As for Adult Bullying, she mentions workplace bullying. “Office environments can sometimes engender hostility or power struggles that set the stage for bullying. This can be particularly true if several people form a clique and then single out a target to bully.”
Dr Chloe mentions long term effects of bullying that she sees even while working with adults. “If someone gets the idea at an early age that the world is a cruel place, they don’t fit in, or they can’t trust others, then self esteem dips while anxiety rises. This in turn has consequences on the types of goals that a person might set or believe they could reach.”
