WEBINAR: Seniors Bullying Seniors

WEBINAR: Seniors Bullying Seniors

October 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

When we hear the word “bully,” we immediately think of children and adolescents.  However, bullying is a very real problem in the older adult population. It is estimated that 10-20% of older-adults experience some type of senior-to-senior aggression, usually as verbal abuse.  The actual numbers of older adults targeted are tough to tease out, because these acts often go unreported.

This session is designed to increase and/or enhance your knowledge regarding the phenomenon of older-adult bullying.  We will outline ways to create a safe environment for addressing the impact on targeted individuals, as well as dealing with the perpetrators.

Webinar participants will:

  • Identify the five common types of adult bullies
  • Describe the characteristics of bullying behaviors
  • Understand the psycho-social impacts of bullying
  • Identify strategies for dealing with adult bullies
