According to the National Association of School Psychologists, bullying is the most common form of violence in our society; between 15% and 30% of students are bullies or victims. These statistics are staggering. However, when bullying finds its way into our schools and homes, the statistics are replaced by real children, our children.
Issues surrounding bullying behaviors are truly complex and deserve the attention of adults and students of all ages. The Anti Bulling Collaboration's purpose is to provide Tulsa and surrounding communities with the necessary resources to help prevent and intervene in bullying situations for students at school or away from school.
PreventBullyingTulsa.org is a collaboration of Tulsa area mental health and advocacy agencies including Parent Child Center of Tulsa, Family & Children’s Services, Mental Health Association in Tulsa, Oklahomans for Equality, Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice, 211 and the Community Service Council. Together they provide the community with educational, counseling and advocacy services regarding children and bullying.
MUSED. + PREVENT BULLYING TULSA
During our Anti Bullying Collaboration events, we ask students to draft a line of poetry
on each typewriter in response to these questions:
1. How does it feel when you're being bullied?
2. How does it feel like when you catch yourself bulling someone?
It's funny to watch the kids take selfies with our giant poem, but it's stirring
to watch them mull over their own bullying mistakes as much as the injustices done to them.
