This event will very briefly review findings from the current Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funded project ‘Prenatal and family precursors of bullying involvement in childhood and their consequences into early adulthood’. The findings show that bullying is not only harmful to mental health but have an impact on people’s ability to hold down jobs, work in teams, save money and even their capacity to trust others. The findings clearly suggest that bullying throws a long shadow over victims’ lives.
More details of the project can be found on the Bullying Study Blog
The major aim of the meeting is to discuss policy connotations of the findings to raise awareness of others in the community to the effects of severe bullying and how to reduce or eliminate it.
