Despite the best efforts of stakeholders, bullying is still a big problem in schools across the country. A lot of young students are suffering from the physical and psychological effects of bullying. Some victims are even showing signs of anxiety problems, and sleep difficulties and having trouble adjusting. According to studies by Bradley University and its online masters in counseling department, as many as 70% of young people have witnessed bullying at school.
School counselors are now taking a more active role in helping to stop bullying. The most common types of bullying, including physical and verbal abuse, are now easier to identify and stop. The presence of a school counselor also helps victims reach out to an authoritative figure at critical times, allowing them to get the support they need.
