In this episode Dr. Witt speaks about bullying. Bullying is not exclusive to children on the school yard. It happens in adult life as well, at work, at home, among strangers and friends.
The key to defusing a situation where you are being bullied is to meet it with assertive energy. That doesn’t mean bullying back. It means that you stand your ground and set a boundary, making it clear that you won’t tolerate being treated like that.
The last thing a bully wants is to deal with someone who stands up for themselves. Make your case, assert yourself, and if that doesn’t work simply walk away or find help before it escalates further.
For the complete guide to handling bullies, watch the video. You’ll be glad you did.
