Bullying is a serious and far too pervasive problem that may lead to long lasting problems for children, adolescents and adults. Effective intervention and prevention of bullying is essential to protect our kids, quickly stop unwanted aggressive behavior, and promote prosocial skills in all environments. This webinar will provide an overview of bullying, why it occurs, and strategies for how it can be prevented and responded to in school, at home, and online.

Dr. Graham Hartke, Psy.D. is a licensed psychologist in private practice and was recently appointed Director of the NJCTS Tourette Syndrome Clinic at Rutgers. He is a graduate of Rutgers University where he received his graduate degree from the Rutgers Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology with a doctorate in school psychology and a concentration in Sport Psychology.



  1. G. Wells says

    Can you give any practical real life tips when the school doesn’t help the situation? Is there a particular website/resource you would recommend?

  2. G Daigle says

    Sometimes parents are concerned about saying the right thing to say to a child who is feeling like a victim. You mentioned a number of resources, is there one in particular that would help parents with the right words?

  3. L Rhyme says

    Any tips on how to avoid sitting along at lunch or on the bus in middle school?

  4. Linda P says

    My son in 5th grade had problems last year – minor ones, but they made him very uncomfortable. What can we say to help him get more at ease this year?

  5. Michelle B says

    My son was in middle school and harassed. Then when he attended summer camp he had similar experiences. In your experience is it possible that some kids give off some way of being that calls attention to them in a negative way. The same could be said for kids that change schools.

  6. Kristen G says

    When you said that bullying doesn’t stop after high school you mean the bully doesn’t stop being a bully – correct? Is a victim typically a victim even in college and beyond?

  7. Rebecca S says

    Does bullying seem to run in families – parent to child or sib to sib?

  8. Tim K says

    What is it called when parents are yelling at kids and coaches on the side lines, is that considered bullying? It’s certainly not good modeling! I understand the desire to support your child, but some of these parents are out of control.

  9. L M says

    On the bus going to a significant behavioral disabilities school… we get “he is bullying me” every week, from different kids (Elementary School). We have already conducted hours of pulling bus tapes. Bus aides and drivers don’t speak English well, so they are not a good resouce, and it comes down to ones word against the other, and very mad parents. Is there a more time efficient way to investigate this? I know this sounds harsh and insensitive, but most of these reports are conflict. Kids aren’t giving many details, but the parents are calling angry that their kid is being bullied. ( we, meaning– home school district sending to the OOD school)
