EVENTS: Bullying as the tip of the iceberg

Maija Lanas worked as a trainer, together with Tomi Kiilakoski in an intensive training day for various professionals working with children and youth in the Oulu region.

Bullying is usually discussed as a simple, definable phenomenon that can be placed into specific students and treated by attending to these students or by excluding these students. This is a problematic view in many ways.

In the training day we, together with roughly 40 professionals, discussed bullying as an escalation of unmanaged peer dynamics, and surfacing of undiscussed societal circumstances and inequalities.
