Dealing with Teasing and Bullying

There are several other techniques that have shown promise in reducing the likelihood that teasing or bullying will occur. Many approaches involve similar ingredients to those used in peer mediation programs, including providing information about autism to classmates and creating regular opportunities for interaction between children with AS-HFA and typical peers. Other programs involve assertiveness training and teaching the child specific techniques for standing up to bullies asking for help, seeking out a safe teacher or place, walking away, using humor, and the like. If you have reason to suspect that your child is being bullied, contact your child's teacher and principal immediately. It is of the utmost importance that your child be protected, which means outlining specific plans to deal with different situations, establishing safe zones around the school, and better monitoring less-structured activities and situations where the harassment may take place. The resource list in the...

Bullying

Bullying involves teasing, insulting, tormenting, intimidating, or being verbally or physically aggressive toward a victim. Bullying behavior may also be indirect, taking the form of rumors, social exclusion, nasty notes, and other insidious means. Bullying is typically repetitive in nature, with bullies targeting victims repeatedly. This behavior tends to be sustained over a long period of time it frequently persists over a year or more. Bullying can be carried out by a single child or groups of children. This behavior is more common among children with psychological disturbances and tends to be more frequently seen in boys than in girls. The behavior often creates an atmosphere of fear and intimidation among those affected. The bully-victim interaction is characterized by an imbalance of power that is, the victim is or feels incapable of defending him- or herself, and the bully is or is perceived to be more powerful than the victim.

Introspection And The Problem Of Selfignorance And Selfdeception

The problem with the idea of introspection is that it implies that we should know ourselves with perfect ease and accuracy, whereas we all know that we (or at least many of our friends and relations) are not nearly so self-aware. Indeed, many human attributes can exist only because we are ignorant of our own natures. For example, the type A personality emotional bully cannot recognize his own anger. The honest hypocrite (most are) must not recognize how his own behavior contrasts with his professed standards for others. And perhaps most clearly, the vain person cannot recognize the actual level of his skills and accomplishments.

Its 2 am and Im still awake Difficulty falling asleep

You've been trying as hard as you can to get yourself to sleep, but your brain just won't cooperate Instead, it keeps wanting you to think about that problem with the report you were working on today, the bully at school who's harassing your child, and so many other problems. Sleep now you order yourself except your body won't cooperate. As you get angrier and more frustrated, the probability of falling asleep soon decreases.

The Good News about Growing Older

Fortunately, adolescence and young adulthood have a plus side too. By this time, some people with AS-HFA, especially those who have received appropriate treatment for several years, have a solid set of tools for navigating social situations. Greater familiarity with the rules of social discourse can help them fit in and draw less negative attention from their peers than during childhood. At the same time, the typical adolescents and young adults around them are maturing too, which often means they are developing greater acceptance of differences in others. You can't count on tolerance, of course cruelty among teenagers is widespread and well publicized, so you as a parent will want to continue to deal with any teasing and bullying of your child that does come up in the ways suggested in Chapter 8. But, in general, these sorts of problems do decrease in high school and drop to very low levels in adulthood.

Closer Look Bullies and Whipping Boys from Childhood to Adulthood

The bullying, however, does not appear to stop in childhood. When Olweus followed thousands of boys from grade school to adulthood, he found marked continuities. The bullies in childhood were more likely to become juvenile delinquents in adolescence and criminals in adulthood. An astonishing 65 percent of the boys who were classified by their Grade 6 teachers as bullies ended up having felony convictions by the time they were 24 years old (Brody, 1996). Many of the bullies apparently remained A study of 228 children, ranging in age from 6 to 16, found several fascinating personality and family relationship correlates of bullying (Connolly & O'Moore, 2003). A total of 115 children were classified as bullies based on both their own self-ratings and on the basis of at least two of their classmates categorizing them as bullies. These were then compared with 113 control children, who both did not nominate themselves as bullies and were not categorized as bullies by any of their classmates....

Closer Look The Six Myths of Self Esteem

Myth Six Only low self-esteem people are aggressive. For decades many psychologists thought that low self-esteem was an important factor underlying aggressive behavior. Under their tough exteriors, aggressive people were thought to suffer from insecurities and self-doubt. However, recent research has shown that aggressive persons often have quite favorable views of themselves. In fact, extremely high self-esteem can blend into narcissism, which has been associated with bouts of anger and aggression when the narcissist does not get his or her way. If self-esteem is threatened or disputed by someone or some event, especially among high self-esteem persons, then they may react with hostility or violence. People with a highly inflated view of their own superiority, those with narcissistic tendencies, may be the most prone to violent reactions. After a challenge to self-esteem (e.g., getting beaten at a game), a person might protect their self-concept by directing their anger outward,...

Bronchopneumonia See pneumonia

Bullying Bullying is an all-too-common experience for many children and adolescents, affecting as many as half of all children at some time during their school years. At least 10 percent of all children are bullied on a regular basis. Bullying behavior can be physical or verbal, and can occur anywhere at home, at school, on the playground, and even in online chat rooms and through e-mail. Victims of this torment experience real suffering that can interfere with social and emotional development, as well as school performance. Some victims of bullying have even attempted suicide rather than continue to endure such harassment and punishment. A bully thrives on controlling or dominating others and often has been the victim of physical abuse or bullying himself. Bullies also may be depressed, angry, or upset about events at school or at home. Children who are bullied also tend to fit a particular profile of being passive, easily intimidated, and having few friends. Victims may be smaller...

Exploring the Link Between Competitiveness and Aggression

The earliest and most competitive feelings Mr. T recalled were aroused in regard to his older brother. He was angry that his brother was favored, particularly given his problematic and aggressive behavior. Efforts to compete with his brother were thwarted by the parents, who, however, did not intervene with his brother's bullying behavior. Mr. T later struggled with guilty feelings about being competitive with his colleagues in the work setting.

Youth Violence General

That 10 of adult males and 20 to 25 of adult females have been sexually abuse sometime in their childhood or adolescence (84). In Canada, 33 of males report sexual abuse under age 18 (29). Abuse leads to many negative behaviors, including injuries, bullying behavior, dating violence, (up to 60 prevalence in adolescent and young adult females), STDs, unwanted pregnancies, and others (29,87).

If your child is physically attacked

Sometimes, other children or adolescents can become physically abusive, and taunting may escalate to pushing and even punching. If this type of violence happens to your child, it's illegal. Report it to the school authorities if it happens at school, and if the abuse is beyond a few minor pushes, report it to the local police as well. Remind yourself that a bullying child who can be stopped and rehabilitated now is less likely to grow up to become an adult who assaults others. But above all, protect your child from physical harm. That's part of your job as a parent.

Neighborhoods and Schools as Opportunities for Intervention

Strategies that address the specific needs of particular schools may also be appropriate. If bullying is the main issue, recommended steps to decrease bullying in schools include clear and consistent school rules against bullying, conflict resolution, activities to enhance self-esteem of all students, and cooperative classroom activities (Arnette & Walsleben, 1998). If gangs are the primary source of violence, successful strategies may include instituting dress codes or school uniforms (to eliminate gang colors), requiring life skills classes on resisting peer pressure, creating a climate of school ownership and pride among students, coordinating graffiti and vandalism cleanup campaigns, and establishing outreach to gang members (Arnette & Walsleben, 1998). Identifying the subcontexts in which violence

Antisocial Personality Antisocial

In the latest diagnostic classification system Diagnostic and Statistical MANUAL-4th edition (DSM-IV), ASP is defined as a disorder that begins in childhood or early adolescence and continues into adulthood it is characterized by a general disregard for and violation of the rights of others. At least three of the following behaviors must have occurred in any twelve-month period of time before the age of 15, with two before age 13 running away from home overnight twice, staying out late at night despite parental rules to the contrary (before age 13), truancy (beginning before age 13), initiating physical fights, using weapons in fights, cruelty to animals and to people, vandalism, forcing someone into sexual activity, arson, frequent lying to obtain favors or goods, frequently bullying, breaking into someone's house or car, and stealing from others (either passively like shoplifting, or aggressively, like mugging). In addition, three of the following behaviors must have occurred since...

Vulnerable Victims Of Crime

Mencap (1999) found that 88 per cent of people with learning disabilities, during a one-year period, had experienced bullying 53 per cent reported that the bullying continued even when it had been reported. However, Speaking up for Justice (Home Office 1998) has made 78 recommendations that should assist witnesses who are vulnerable or intimidated. Some of these recommendations have been included in the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999. This act defines vulnerable witnesses as

Why Should Professionals Be Interested

A U.K. study involving national focus groups of young people with JIA highlighted the need to consider social aspects of the young person's life alongside their physical and psychological needs (1). Young people reported an overwhelming need to meet similar others with JIA and the need for health professionals to pay increased attention to issues such as bullying, social isolation, and the loss of valued social activities. In a health care setting discussion of such topics can help develop rapport and build trusting relationships. In addition the development of interventions to address these issues may prove invaluable. Developing a supportive client-centered relationship that is seen as responsive and motivating may improve adherence, as has been demonstrated in young people with diabetes, comparing a client-centered approach with doctors who were expert decision makers who adopted a traditional medical model (10). Health care workers may therefore need training to ensure that their...

Mental Illness

No one has identified genes encoding morality. Nevertheless, character traits, such as conscientiousness and agreeableness, are found to be the same in identical twins separated at birth, and growing up in different environments. Some with antisocial personality disorder show signs of morality blindness as they grow up. They bully younger children, torture animals, lie, and are incapable of empathy or remorse, despite normal family surroundings. Some grow up to be criminals who try to talk elderly people out of their savings, rape women, or shoot convenience-store clerks lying on the floor during a robbery.

Peer Support Schemes

Anti-Bullying Policies All schools should have a robust anti-bullying policy with clear systems in place that are communicated to staff and students regarding to how bullying is dealt with. Often the main focus is to eliminate the climate of bullying and tackle bystander behavior. This involves not only intervention for the victim or bully but for all young people, who learn that bullying is not acceptable behavior. The peer support of friends and school-initiated policies may also be a positive way of dealing with bullying. When mechanisms are available to students, they are more likely to discuss and tackle their problems at an early stage before they escalate. Talking to someone of a similar age who understands allows the young person to enlist support and help in dealing with the bully. Without peer support, the victim may eventually tell teachers, however this is usually happens much later in order to avoid being accused of 'tattle-telling' and usually the matter has become more...

Chevese Turner

This is what people who are living in larger bodies experience on a daily basis. They are discriminated against in the workplace, given lower-quality healthcare, and experience disapproval, criticism, and bullying from family members, friends, and others. For the person struggling with an eating disorder this daily insult can be unbearable and further entrench a person's use of food as a coping mechanism, which leads to increased distress.

Lynn Grefe

To increase understanding for BED we must expand our public education efforts to the same levels as offered for other eating disorders. NEDA has created a Binge Eating Disorder Task Force to include top clinicians and experts, and also families and sufferers. The goals of this task force are to identify how NEDA can develop the best possible resource base and deliver the information in the most effective way. While we included BED information in the past, this did not extend to a diagnosis for mental health insurance coverage now that it is a diagnosis, we must feature it more prominently in all that we do. At NEDA, a spotlight is being placed on BED in all of our programs to ensure the public is aware of this serious illness and of the resources we offer for those affected. As the number of people affected by BED is much higher than other eating disorders, we are saying It's about time We also are incorporating a BED component into our National NEDA Navigator Program, which involves...

Binge Eating Disorder (BED) has myriad causal factors. Biology, genetics, weight stigma and weight-related bullying, cultural pressures to be thin, a history of trauma, and family dynamics may all play a part. We know, too, that the specific combination of these factors varies a lot from person to person. Clinically we see some specific psychological factors that present with particular frequency in the adult population of patients with BED. Problematic attachment styles and an inability to set and maintain appropriate relational boundaries are often of particular concern. Somatic disconnection and dissociative behavior is also common especially for survivors of abuse, powerful feelings of shame may elicit use of food to disconnect. In these cases, BED is often a powerfully protective mechanism, and one that patients quite wisely do not give up easily. Patients with BED have often been the victims of weight stigma, especially as children (Puhl and Heuer 2009). One study suggests 65...

Leadership

On this particular occasion, the general discussion seemed to grow evermore personal, words like blame, fault and responsibility filling the air. The exchanges became more and more heated and petty. Occasionally, someone would glance over at the team leader as though expecting something to come from her, but nothing did. The situation built up further and further until it struck the leader as sounding like a children's playground, with exactly the same sort of hectoring, sarcasm and bullying. She was finding it more and more irritating but still did not know what to do

Caring For Children

The children of parents with learning disabilities can also become victims, even if their parents are providing good care. As the children grow up and become aware of their parents' disabilities, they may develop protective roles towards their parents and, in some cases, even become their parents' carer (Booth & Booth 1998). Many of these children have reported difficulties in their early lives and have suffered bullying from their peers (Crabtree & Warner 1999). Despite this, there is some anecdotal evidence which reports many children (both as children and adults) of parents with learning disabilities describing deep feelings of closeness and love towards their parents (Bibby & Becker 2000 Booth & Booth 1998). This view is further reinforced in a study carried out by Perkins et al. (2002) on the emotional well-being of children whose parents have learning disabilities which revealed that the children were more able to cope with the stigma of having a parent with a learning...

Conduct Disorder

Conduct disorder is a pattern of behavior in which individuals consistently disregard and violate the rights of others. The specific types of behaviors are varied and can include physical violence, repeated lying, damaging property, and stealing. Conduct disorder is believed to have roots in family interaction early in development, although its full expression may not occur until adolescence. For example, many studies show that family members train each other to engage in conflictive and coercive behavior that may lead to later conduct problems. This can be seen especially among siblings, as they can observe each other interacting with their parents and ''practice'' aggressive and bullying behavior with each other. During adolescence, however, individuals with conduct problems may form social networks with others, both friends and siblings, who are also trained in coercive behavior, and thus reinforce and encourage each other's antisocial tendencies.
