Bullying is repeated and prolonged systematic behaviour by one or more people directed against another person. The behaviour can be verbal, non-verbal or physical and aims to hurt, humiliate or exclude the victim. Bullying usually takes place in an unequal power relationship where the perpetrators have control over the situation and the person affected is helpless. Bullying can have serious psychological and physical consequences for the victim and should therefore be taken seriously and actively combated.

Bullying at schools is a serious problem that unfortunately still occurs too often. According to a 2020 study by the German Children's Fund, about 19 per cent of those surveyed have experienced bullying in recent months. These are worrying figures that show that bullying at schools is still a major problem today.

Another study conducted by the German Children's Fund in 2021 shows that bullying in schools has remained a major problem even during the COVID 19 pandemic. About 21 percent of respondents report bullying experiences, especially in an online context. These figures illustrate that the pandemic has not reduced the problem of bullying in schools in Germany.

Bullying can have serious consequences for those affected. A study conducted by Techniker Krankenkasse in 2020 found that bullying at schools in Germany is very common compared to other countries. About 11 per cent of those surveyed had been bullied in recent months. The consequences for those affected are often severe: bullying can lead to psychological problems such as depression or anxiety and can affect self-confidence and performance at school.

It is important that schools and teachers take the issue of bullying seriously and actively address it. We can help you raise awareness of the issue and teach learners the importance of respectful interaction. Interactive sessions and group exercises can help participants learn to resolve conflicts in a positive way and to be empathetic towards each other.

Our project days on bullying offer schools and teachers a way to actively tackle the problem and support participants who are affected by the phenomenon. We offer interactive group exercises that strengthen the participants' ability to reflect and communicate.

Our project days are individually tailored to the needs of the learners and are designed to help create a respectful and tolerant school climate. We want to help young people learn to resolve conflicts without violence and to develop empathy.

We are convinced that our work can contribute to reducing bullying in schools. We get to the root of the problem and support learners in creating a climate of togetherness and tolerance together. Contact us without obligation to learn more about our project days on this topic and let us work together against bullying in schools!
