Bullying: Healthcare Promotion Plan

Health Concerns or Needs

Today’s modern medical problem for this allocated program pertains to children ranging in age from middle school to high school. Bullying, as per the CDC, is defined as inappropriate, aggressive conduct among school-aged teenagers that involves a real or potential power differential. Kids who are abused or who are known to mistreat someone else might face major issues as they grow, such as drug consumption and, in the worst-case scenario, suicidal ideation and behavior. Bullying impacts parents and siblings as well as students, causing emotional distress, frustration, and anxiety, as well as medical impacts, feelings of hopelessness, and isolation. Several parents remain upset with their child and believe that the youngster has done something illegal the bullying. When the parent discovers that their child is not guilty of any misbehavior, the parent gets upset because they recognize their child is being bullied spontaneously. This study will reflect on the implementation of a health promotion plan to focus on identifying and mitigating bullying in kindergarten through high school seniors.

Bullying is a complex issue that should be addressed to improve the lives of children. As per the CDC, one in every five high school students was bullied on school grounds last year, and more than one in every six high school students was harassed electronically. Bullying affects certain young people more than others. As per the CDC, nearly 40% of teenagers who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, and an estimated 33% of those who are doubtful of their gender orientation, personally encountered bullying and abuse digitally in the previous year, especially in contrast to 22% of heterosexual high school students (“Preventing bullying,” 2020). Incidences of bullying are higher in middle schools at 28%, associated with high schools at 16%, integrated schools at 12%, and preschools at 9%. Middle schools had the greatest rate of bullying at 33%, associated with high schools at 30%, integrated schools at 20%, and kindergartens at 5% (“Preventing bullying,” 2020)

Health Concerns within Specific Population

A survey of school-aged teenagers who have been bullied revealed that they are concerned about feeling shame and mistreatment. One youngster expressed to me that he is depressed and angry as a result of being bullied. Another girl expressed a desire to leave school and stay with her sister Cynthia, who lives in a neighboring region. She continued by stating that if she moved schools, she “might have a new start in life.” The students that are being targeted live in a huge community just except in a major metropolitan area and are between 11 to 17 of age. The students live in a middle area where both of their parents work full-time. 

Focused Individual or Group Hypothesis

Bullying children has not elevated any possibility. The places where bullying can happen are cities, small villages, and many other neighboring locations. According to multiple locations, it depends on the sex of people whether they are children, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. Sometimes false information can lead to any stigma in which case bullying or harassment might be greater than before in different communities, groups of people, or any individual.

Case 1: In an old Irish American city, a student whose name is Phoebe Prince and she is 15 years of age, attempted suicide because she was bullied by her classmates continuously for a long time. When the classmates who mistreated Phoebe knew of her death, they proceeded to mock her on social media. One of them updated her Facebook status to mission achieved in response to Phoebe’s suicide. Phoebe began dating a 17 years old boy. Soon after, the boy moved on to another female. Phoebe was being followed by her classmates at the school of South Hadley. Phoebe was trapped in school hallways, the library, the cafeteria, and on her walk home by a gang of nine teens, seven of whom were female and two of whom were male. They harassed her, knocked books out of her hands, and texted her threats. She went home and killed herself. The students of the school who harassed and attacked her were punished for one whole year & were asked to do 100 days long community service.

Case 2: Sandra is a 12-year-old African-American girl in sixth grade. She was identified as having a specific learning handicap. Sandra lives in the same house as her elder brother and grandma. Sandra has no contact with her mother, even though she lives in the same town. Sandra is subjected to verbal and physical assault at school. Bullies refer to her as “dirty, stinking, deprived, and nappy.” Sandra likes to watch funny shows on television and play with her do (Ramirez, n.d.).

Case 3: Jessica Logan emailed her lover a nude photo. The snapshot was quickly distributed to hundreds of kids in at least seven high schools in the Cincinnati region. Due to her nude photo case, Jessica was abused by her class-fellows daily. Jessica started holidays from school to avoid abusiveness, but she face cyber attacks at her home due to that nude photo case. But she did not lose heart and graduated from the high regardless of many issues, but harassment & abusiveness continued her. Jessica Logan hung herself in her room after being subjected to continuous and harsh mocking from classmates, acquaintances, and even strangers. Logan filed a complaint against her school for not taking sexual harassment attacks seriously. Both parties including her school & attackers reached a settlement of $154,000 for her family and $66,000 for the fees of the lawyer (Cantoral Domínguez & Pérez Fuentes, 2018).

Health Promotion Plan aiding a Specific Population

A health promotion strategy can assist the target population in three ways:

  • It helps students to have more control over their lives and enhance their health.
  • It involves all parties engaged in their daily life.
  • Activities should be structured to encourage their bad behavior and allow them to concentrate on the persons in danger. 
  • In this situation, the bully will adhere to and execute a health promotion plan that will allow the bully to reflect on their conduct and make appropriate changes (Herman et al., n.d.).

Goals of the Health Promotion Plan

  • Participants will be able to list 5 health hazards associated with bullying after the first session, allowing those who perform the act of bullying to be identified.
  • The primary purpose is to guarantee that educational institutions implement and enforce an anti-bullying program to protect children from all forms of bullying, including personal and cyberbullying.
  • Create a school counseling program centered on individual bullying victims, allowing them to voice their thoughts and behaviors.
  • Create a mentorship program for both victims and aggressors that encourages the effects of bullying and allows them to deal with and cope with their experiences.

Conclusion

Bullying is a complicated occurrence that begins with a person’s or collective’s violent conduct in a school bullying context that undermines the dignity of the wounded person who was subjected to physical and/or psychological aggression. Repeated violence is evaluated to determine the extent of damage to the harmed. Legal restitution measures for bullying have made it feasible to protect children’s best interests. This is because educational institutions commit to defending children’s and teenagers’ rights to dignity, integrity, education, and non-discrimination.
