Guideline for Students


5. The Most Effective Ways to Help Others


Those who notice particular attitudes due to abuse or bullying episodes should immediately inform an adult (parent, teacher, guardian, educator, etc.), so that these incidents might be reported and sorted out.
A climate of disapproval around the bully should be created, appealing to the sense of responsibility of each student, and to the fact that students would become accomplices in the case of non-intervention.
Support the victim, making him understand that he is not alone, showing sympathy and understanding, as well as looking for the possible solutions together with him. It would be appropriate to practice actions of Peer Support.
