Managing Bullying and
Group Dynamics
in Residential Settings

June 1, 2017

This training will be presented in two parts, based on two audiences: providers and agency management in the morning; and older adult residents in senior residential living facilities in the afternoon.

Bullying and Group Dynamics (Morning Session) - Presented to providers and agency management, this training will review the growing body of literature on bullying in older adult residential settings, which is beginning to be recognized as problematic, although largely under-researched and under-reported. Research to date will be discussed, as well as intervention lessons learned from school bullying initiatives and social psychology. Examples of intervention models being used and studied to decrease bullying will be discussed. The training will focus on strategies that staff and administration can use to identify bullying and decrease resident victimization and an individual level as well as an agency level.

Residential Living: Making it Work (Afternoon Session) Presented to older adults living in residential settings, this training will focus on peer-to-peer interaction strategies and approaches that are protective against bullying, and contribute to improved community living. The training will discuss the importance of each member of the community developing a positive social role in the residence, and the benefits to creating an inclusive and positive environment.
