MOUNT VERNON - Jim Bisenius, a former therapist who has made a career out of speaking about and combating bullying, kept his audience absorbed for almost an hour Thursday night as he talked about bullying and ways to help kids resist it.
Unfortunately, there were only about 30 people in the audience at Mount Vernon High School on a dreary night with snow in the forecast. A panel of people from various agencies that either see the effects of bullying or have programs on the problem, were on hand to answer questions about their roles in the effort, but most of the attention was on Bisenius. Bisenius, who spent nine years as a therapist for Moundbuilders before embarking on his role as a speaker and consultant on bullying, first described how adults catch only about one in 10 incidents of bullying, and with some types of bullying that seems to mostly be used by girls, only about one in 50. He explained how most bullies tend to have low self-esteem and are seeking to pull others down to their level.

However, adults can help solve the problem by changing the victim's dance with the bully, Jim Bisenius told the Roosevelt Middle School faculty last week. Bisenius has been a child and adolescent therapist for more than nine years, including working at Moundbuilders Guidance Center.While in private practice, he worked with children who had been victimized.Then, he converted his therapy methods in seminars and assemblies for parents, teachers and students. Bisenius told the faculty about family dynamics that usually create bullies and their victims and how to place them in a classroom situation for the least amount of effect on each other. He is scheduled to present his bully-proofing assembly to Roosevelt students in October. Bullies are driven by a lack of love from their parents, Bisenius said. Bisenius divides bullies into two groups: Children who are neglected by their parents and who fear their parents won't love them if they fail mom and dad; or conditionally loved children. A conditionally-loved child knows what to say to adults so they're not perceived as a bully, he said.They're bright and verbal. A neglected child who is a bully usually is loud, boisterous and physical, a "classic bully," he said. Bisenius says these children aren't bothered when they learn the proper techniques to respond to their persecutor. "Bullies are like sharks swimming through the ocean.They're looking for who is bleeding," Bisenius said. Bullies feed on fear and attention, he told the staff. "It doesn't matter how many flaws a kid has," Bisenius said.

According to Jim Bisenius, founder of Bully-Proofing Youth, "starving" them is the key.
Don't react to a verbal bully's taunts, and he will turn his attention elsewhere. He has specific suggestions for effectively "starving" bullies, as well as how to deal with relational (girl-on-girl) and physical bullying. Find out more at www.bullyproofingyouth.com.
