Bullying: It's Not Just For Kids

 

In recent news stories and our Stop the Bullying Campaign we have focused on bullying at schools in Door and Kewaunee Counties, but it doesn't always end when diplomas are awarded.

Bullying can be just as devastating to adults as it can be with children, and once we grow up there is little to no protection.

Dr. Dennis White, a licensed clinical psychologist in Sturgeon Bay, says the workplace can become the adult version of the school yard.

Bullying among adults can be found in relationships as well and White says the targets can become depressed, develop phobias or even leave their job to escape the hostile environment. Bullied adults may feel there is nowhere to turn, but White says being clear about the bully's action being offensive or unwelcome and asking him or her to stop can go a long way.

Ignoring the issue won't change anything. White says addressing the bully, adult or adolescent, is the most effective way to stop bullying.
