Why Do They Pick on Me?
By Pippa Eden
It seems bullying has become a fact of life. As one of many survivors of schoolyard bullying, Pippa Eden has developed key coping strategies to help the bullied understand why they are being bullied and how to deal with the experience.
Eden understands the long-term effect bullying can have, even in adulthood. She also recognizes that it is often just as easy to be the bully as to be bullied. In fact, like Eden herself in her school yard days, we can switch from one to the other in a schoolyard chain reaction.
Why Do They Pick on Me? offers insight from both sides of the bullying experience in the hope that awareness will minimize both bullying and its aftermath.Pippa Eden is a practicing counselor.
