Webinar Description

This webinar was designed to update health care professionals in the latest definitions of bullying and ostracism and recent empirical findings about their impact. The primary focus was on the disproportionate rates of bullying and ostracism reported by CYSHCN. Tools for screening in pediatric specialty care or primary care clinics will be introduced along with suggestions for prevention and intervention efforts that may be within the capacity of busy health care professionals.
