Report calls attention to sick and special needs kids who are particularly vulnerable to attack and explores the developmental consequences of bullying
MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL – (July 1, 2013) – In an effort to draw greater attention to the health and developmental impacts bullying has on children, Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota today released a report called, "Understanding the Threat of Bullying." The report examines bullying as a public health threat from a medical provider perspective.
"Any child is susceptible to bullying but, based on our experience, we also know that children who are sick or have special needs are even more vulnerable to bullying-related behavior and may suffer a setback in their health or development as a result," said Alan L. Goldbloom, MD, CEO of Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. "Our clinical perspective drives us to dig deeper into what this dynamic means for kids and to explore how we as a medical community can help children navigate this threat."
