Bullying Prevention shows a brief, ecosystemic approach to preventing larger, older children from bullying smaller, younger children. Dr. Arthur M. Horne discusses how he works with both the victims and the perpetrators of bullying, always examining the school and family systems that may inadvertently support bullying behavior. In this session, Dr. Horne meets with a teenage boy and his mother and provides him with skills and actions for coping with bullies, including practicing self-calming techniques, keeping a long-term perspective, and asking a trusted teacher for help.
