Bullying is a multifaceted, complex experience that increases the risk of a wide range of adverse consequences, including sleep-related disturbances. Developed to increase awareness of the dangers of bullying, this training examines different types of bullying behaviors (e.g., verbal, physical, social, and cyber) along with their implications on sleep health. A section of this training will examine the neurobiopsychosocial factors associated with bullying and their impact on overall sleep quality. Other topics discussed in this training include internalization and externalizing behavioral problems, attachment disruptions, rejection, self-esteem issues, emotional dysregulation, and psychiatric comorbidity. Implications for screening and intervention will be explored. Empirically-based research findings will be presented throughout this training.
This training will provide participants clinical knowledge and tools to:
a). Define bullying and distinguish its various subtypes.
b). Develop a working knowledge of the common causes and consequences associated with sleep disturbances among persons with a history of being bullied.
c). Discuss screening options to improve the identification of sleep disturbances among clients with a history of being bullied.
d). Learn about intervention and treatment options.
e). Acquire an understanding of the existing empirical research on bullying and sleep disturbances.
