On this episode of The Bullied Brain we talk about statistics and studies around bullying in schools and the need for an upstream approach to address the issue.
We highlight the impact of bullying on children. We talk about the need for a different approach to tackle bullying, focusing on early intervention.
The concept of teaching children about brain health and providing daily exercises to promote brain well-being, how children should be taught empathy and compassion, and a focus on their brain health being prioritised alongside academic subjects.
Jen emphasises the importance of addressing the underlying issues of trauma and adversity that children may be facing, rather than solely focusing on addressing bullying behaviour itself.
We also discuss the long-term consequences of bullying, including its association with criminality later in life.
