Abstract

 

Bullying is an adolescent scourge that has wide-ranging effects beyond the bully and the victim. According to the U.S. Department of Education, 21% of 12-18-year-olds report having experienced bullying. Yet, from digging into the data, it is evident that, depending on the definition, the issue is significantly worse… and increasing. Bullying encompasses everything from random teasing to viral cyber-attacks to more serious physical threats and actions, even including deadly weapons. In this Webinar, we will explore what bullying is, the latest assessment of its reasons, the effect on individuals and systems, and the best practices in dealing with this widespread issue.

Participants will:

 
  1. Be able to describe the general definition of bullying and the breadth of the issue
  2. Be able to recognize how bullying effects not only the victim, but also the bully, both families, and the system where the bullying occurs
  3. Be able to employ various best practices in responding to bullying

Abstract

 

A deep sense of shame often underlies and drives eating disorders (ED) and substance abuse (SA). When these two disorders co-occur, the level of shame intensifies. The special challenges of treating these co-occurring disorders will be discussed from a Christian perspective. This presentation highlights shame as a key force underlying and perpetuating the cyclical nature of these disorders. Clinicians will learn how to identify and help individuals break the patterns of shame that drive destructive behaviors mentally and spiritually.

Participants will:

 
  1. Be able to articulate and identify the special challenges in diagnosing and treating co-occurring ED and SA from a Christian perspective
  2. Be able to articulate and identify the cyclical role that shame plays in the precipitation and perpetuation of these disorders
  3. Be able to identify and articulate practical ways to help individuals break cycles of shame and destructive behaviors in ED and SA
