London, UK (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
David Younger, PhD, CGP, PC is a New York state licensed psychologist. With a master’s degree in psychology from New York University, a master’s degree in child psychology from the Anna Freud Centre in London, and a doctorate in psychology from the University of London, Dr. Younger talks to NoBullying.com today about if bullying can disappear or not.
When asked about the effects of Bullying, Dr Younger said, “I have a number of patients that were bullied when they were in school. People have different coping mechanisms when it comes to dealing with trauma. Some people detach and become numb, others overcompensate and become bullies themselves, and others avoid situations that will trigger the trauma. Bullying can definitely cause PTSD.”
His advice on dealing with bullying is simple “Parents that are connected with their kids and have open lines of communication should not struggle too much... Parents that are not very aware and connected might note behavioural and emotional differences in their children, but won’t understand why. Kids can feel intense shame as a product of being bullied and do a lot to hide it. The most important thing to do is to talk with your kids. Maintain consistent communication. Know who their friends are.”
Dr Younger maintains the need for zero tolerance policy against bullying whether online or offline as well as the need for teachers and parents to know how to spot a bully or a bully’s victim right away to minimize the effects the bullying dynamic can do to children if not treated properly.
