Bullying is Intentional

I heard a most interesting talk the other day by Dr. Gordon Neufeld (http://neufeldinstitute.com/) regarding bullying and his theory of ‘Alpha Askew’.

I have always held the belief that bullying was intentional and his theory would seem to confirm that belief.  Dr. Neufeld’s theory speaks to the fact that everyone has alpha instincts. We are born to care for one another; however, we are also born with dependency instincts.

Bullying in the Workplace

The case of Amanda Todd has really brought the topic of bullying front and centre.  We know that bullying occurs on the playground; in the schools; and in workplaces; and as a result of Amanda Todd’s very sad story we are seeing very clearly, that it also occurs on social media.

What can parents, school officials, workplace managers and employees do?
