AUSB’s Albert J. Munoz-Flores To Present on Bullying Effects & Prevention

AUSB’s Albert J. Munoz-Flores, PsyD, will give two educational presentations on childhood bullying for the community in April, as bullying has been identified as a form of aggressive behavior present in schools. The consequences of childhood bullying manifest themselves in a variety of negative ways, including elevated rates of anxiety disorders, agoraphobia, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.

These presentations will provide useful information for parents about the history and prevalence of bullying, and the degree that it impacts a young person’s ability to communicate with peers appropriately and develop healthy social contacts at school and in the community. The impact that bullying has on parents will also be discussed as well as useful strategies to help parents identify and aid children who are victims of bullying and cyberbullying.
