When we hear the word bully, we immediately think of children and adolescents, but it is 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 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, and outline ways to create a safe environment for addressing the targeted individuals as well as 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
• Iidentify strategies for dealing with adult bullies.

Registration is now closed. Please contact DeAnn Hartman at 360-529-5818 with questions.
