Another prominent concern of today’s parent is bullying, especially that occurring online. Like teen self-harm, many adults worry that their child or teen is a silent victim in a world of social networking, websites, and texts that anyone over 30 often hasn’t even heard of. (I had to google “formspring.”) ARCH has invited one of the world’s leading psychologists to share a link to his comprehensive presentation about bullying and cyberbullying.
Dr. Jerome (Jerry) Sattler is one of the most accomplished assessors, authoring the “bible” of child assessment and helping to revise likely the most famous intelligence test in the world. He has high standards for precision with an equal emphasis on the human aspect of assessment – compassion, respect, and “rolling with” events as they unfold.
Dr. Sattler’s bullying presentation is another example of his commitment to improving quality of life for children and teens by putting knowledge into action. It has tips for parents and teachers on monitoring, prevention, and action in the real world and the online world.
