October 15, 2015
Presented by Anthony P. Mannarino, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Traumatic Stress in Children and Adolescents and Vice Chair, Department of Psychiatry, Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh, Pa.
This presentation will address the psychological impact of bullying on students. The focus will be on the potential traumatizing effects of bullying, including placing students at risk for the development of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety problems, and self-harm. There will also be a discussion of the signs that teachers and parents can look for that may suggest that a student is being seriously affected and when to seek professional help. Additionally, evidence-based treatment approaches for students significantly impacted by bullying will be described.
