Description: Bullying is intentional and repetitive behavior involving an imbalance of power or strength. Recently, bullying among residents has been occurring in senior facilities and daycares. Research indicates that between 10%-20% of residents have experienced some form of bullying from their peers. It causes considerable emotional distress for not only the targets, but for the other residents and staff.

During this seminar there will be interactive activities among participants in problem solving for various types of bullying behaviors. A packet of activities will be provided for participants to implement with seniors to promote a pro-social and caring environment among residents. A pre-questionnaire will also be included to be given to residents to determine the types of bullying behavior they have witnessed and experienced and a post-questionnaire to see if these issues have improved following suggestions and activities offered in this seminar.
