BULLYING AWARENESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAM & WORKSHOPS
My name is Elysia Paisley. I am a clinical psychologist working in Melbourne. My background is in mental health, prisons and private practice. I work with young people and their parents, teachers and schools.
I am passionate about the issue of mental health and wellbeing of children and young people and the impact of bullying.
Bullying in primary schools is very common. In Australia, one in four students report that they have been bullied. More recent research has found that approximately one in three children are involved in bullying - either as victims, bullies or bystanders. Bullying can have serious and long-lasting negative consequences including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, suicide and self-harm, and violence.
In my work, I see the impact that bullying can have on traumatised students and distressed parents. I see adults in their 30s, 40s and 50s who have been affected by bullying as children. I work with teachers that are trying to juggle lesson plans and dealing with challenging behaviours and the wellbeing of their students.
My passion and experience in the area has led me to develop a range of evidence-based bullying workshops to empower students, teachers and parents and equip them with skills and techniques to address bullying and related issues.

I hope to see you at one of the workshops soon!
