EmLogis, a leading provider of employee scheduling software for long term care facilities, will host a live webinar on Wednesday March 25, 2015 at 1 PM Central entitled “4 Steps To Preventing Senior Bullying.” The webinar, targeted at long term care administrators, will be hosted by EmLogis and will feature guest speaker Dr. Eleanor Feldman Barbera (also known as “Dr. El.”), an author and psychologist focused on Long Term Care.
According to the American Psychological Association, “Bullying is a form of aggressive behavior in which someone intentionally and repeatedly causes another person injury or discomfort. Bullying can take the form of physical contact, words or more subtle actions. The bullied individual typically has trouble defending him or herself and does nothing to “cause the bullying.” According to senior bullying expert Dr. Robin Bonifas at Arizona State University, 10% to 20% of elders in senior communities experience bullying. Join Dr. El as she discusses the importance of addressing senior bullying and provides practical advice on how to create an atmosphere that discourages bullying within long term care communities.
