Many students feel that the adults in their lives – parents, teachers, community members – are failing to adequately address this issue (Danielson & Emmers-Sommer, 2016; Tenenbaum, Varjas, Meyers, & Paris, 2011 ).
Areas of concern include:
- Education – School avoidance, loss of academic achievement and increase in drop out rates
- Health – Physical and emotional including stomachaches, headaches, sleeping issues, depression, fear, or anxiety
- Safety – Harm to self and others, including self-isolation, increased aggression, alienation, and retaliation.
