Facebook teamed up with Marc Brackett Ph.D. and Robin Stern Ph.D. and their team at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence to provide youth and adults with valuable tools and strategies to help them effectively address bullying behavior and its consequences. Our combined goal is to develop innovative educational approaches that empower people of all ages with the emotional intelligence skills they need to succeed.
Aggressive behavior that is repeated over time and involves an imbalance of power. This imbalance can be the social status, age, or even physical size of the perpertrator. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
