“Whether Bullying is currently increasing or decreasing, the truth remains that a lot of children and adults are bullied online and offline every single day"
London, UK (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
NoBullying.com releases today an interview with Shane Mehta, a Mental Health Counsellor at The Boys’ Club of New York, on Understanding Bullying.
Shane Mehta is a Mental Health Counselor at The Boys’ Club of New York. She has her MA and EdM and serves BCNY’s Harriman Clubhouse, located in New York’s East Village. She spoke to NoBullying.com about the need to understand bullying. This particular need of understanding bullying can be a very important factor to fighting bullying.
Shane stressed the fact the recent numbers suggest that bullying is on the rise. For example, according to a report from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), bullying increased almost 25% between 2001 and 2007. However, these numbers could also be the result of more people reporting bullying, rather than an increase in the bullying activity itself.
She also spoke of BCNY’s commitment to train the staff on how to recognize, respond to, and address bullying, how to reinforce BCNY’s policy on bullying and how to provide individualized mental health services for members who experience bullying and members who bully others.
Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of Treze, said “Whether Bullying is currently increasing or decreasing, the truth remains that a lot of children and adults are bullied online and offline every single day, the world doesn't need another bullying victim’s suicide to take note of how severe Bullying is worldwide.”
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.
