The weapons used in bullying are not the typical weapons that we think of:  A bully uses social behaviors to attack, isolate and injure their target. This instills fear in others- often including the people in charge. The damage spreads. If we are going to make a difference, we need to recognize the weapons early so we can disarm the bully and create safety.

Listen to Clinical Social Worker, Dr. Beth Plachetka from Safe Harbor Counseling and Dr. Beth Speaks as she explains the weapons bullies use and how to recognize them.
