SENIOR TO SENIOR ANTI-BULLYING TOOLKIT
Dr. Kirsten Madsen.
“People of all ages can be bullied.”
“Bullying is sometimes called harassment and happens when someone hurts, intimidates or scares a peer consciously or unconsciously. When someone is being bullied they often have a hard time defending themselves. Bullying is usually not a one-time event. It can happen over and over again.”
“Solutions: Everybody’s Business Senior to Senior Anti-Bullying Toolkit… contains best practices for older adults, front-line staff, and agencies to use in order to prevent and respond to bullying behaviors between older adults.”
The Senior Bullying Project began by collecting information from older adults through a survey about their experiences with peer to peer bullying. Key areas were identified and strategies were developed on how to best prevent and intervene in cases of older adult bullying.
Senior to Senior Anti-Bullying Toolkit training topics include:
- Setting an Antibullying Policy and Procedures.
- Targets of Bullying.
- Creating a Positive Environment.
- Older Adults Who Have Engaged in Bullying Behaviors.
