March 27, 2008 –LAWFUEL – Legal Newswire – Is bullying an acceptable childhood rite of passage or a form of potentially severe abuse?
“Bullying is Peer Abuse,” insists author Elizabeth Bennett. “Bullying has long been accepted as a normal part of growing up, but everything changed after Columbine. After one of the greatest school massacres in American history, people began to realize how severe the danger can be, but parents and educators are often at a loss as to how to cope with it.”
Peer Abuse Know More! introduces the reader to the term ‘Peer Abuse’ and gives insight into the psychological make-up of both victims and bullies. What are the possible consequences of tolerating peer abuse? Victims may develop problems such as depression or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder. Bullies may develop personality issues such as narcissistic and anti-social personality disorders. What is the perfect Anti-Bullying Law? What is the effect on adult survivors? A 20-point questionnaire for Adult Survivors of Peer Abuse is included.
About the Author: Elizabeth Bennett is an adult survivor of over 27 years of peer abuse, has developed her work and made a mission of educating others on this serious and complex problem.
