ADULTS & BULLYING     Most perceive adults to be immune, Misconception - adults are resilient & bullying doesn’t affect them as it would a child, Like schoolyard bullies - most obvious & easiest-todetect (swearing, taunting, put-downs & physical abuse), Most common is insidious form of subtle intimidation: i.e. silence/rolling of eyeballs when target walks into room, negative comments/spreading malicious gossip to co-workers, not being invited to crucial meetings/events, stripped of critical duties & constantly set up to fail).

  24. 24. HELPFUL BYSTANDER     Some directly intervene - discouraging bully, defending victim & redirecting situation away, Others seek help - rallying support from peers to stand up – report to management, Approach victim - empathy & validation of the bullied person’s feelings are reassuring, Bystander is the catalyst for victim to speak up, lets victim know they’re not alone, in most cases bullied person does have overwhelming feelings of isolation, alienation & loneliness.

  30. 30. HURTFUL BYSTANDER      Instigate by prodding bully to begin, Encourage by laughing & make comments that further stimulate the bully, Join in once it’s begun, most commonly through exclusion of victim, Passively accept by watching & doing nothing without realising - these bystanders contribute to the issue, Passive bystanders provide an audience (the bully craves on this & the silent acceptance allows bully to continue hurtful behaviour).

  32. 32. HURTFUL BYSTANDER      Greater no of bystanders, less likely anyone will help? Programmed to shy away from confronting situations & tell ourselves or even believe that: “Someone else will do it”, “someone else will intervene”, “someone else will find a solution”, Why don’t we step up & BE that “someone else”? Doesn’t take a lot of effort, doesn’t need to be direct intervention - all it takes is: Empathy & see what they’re going through, this affects their ability to function, do their jobs & will cast dark shadow over personal lives with their kids, partners & friends. Copyright © 2013 BZAF. No part of this publication may be reproduced, stored or transmitted in any form or by any means without the prior written permission of Bully Zero Australia Foundation.
  33. 33. POWER OF 1     If you’re passive - almost as bad as being the bully? Stretching the mark but importance of bystander is enormous - support or direct intervener, Power of 1 isn't to be underestimated, makes difference between how the victim perceives the situation & actual reality of the unacceptable behaviour going on, Can make difference between them continuing to suffer or speaking out & having issue handled.

  35. 35. BULLY ZERO  Can’t be in every school, workplace, or online space, but we will continue to speak out & step up & stand up,  Have made it 1 of our greatest missions to inform Australians about the importance of the bystander,  Looking out for each other & speaking out when we see something that isn’t right, we are making the world a better place, one person at a time.
