Bullying has been a serious issue in education in our society. In earlier times, bullying was seen as a childhood developmental disorder that was thought to be correctable with the appropriate discipline, and it was thought that would make it dissipate as the child grows up. However, it is now understood that the same or similar bullying behaviors repeatedly appear throughout the lives of some adults. Adult bullying in academia and the workplace have become serious sociocultural and socioeconomic problems. Many incidents that relate to incivility, harassment, violence,and bullying are usually categorized generically. However, bullying is not always so generic due if we look at its direction toward diverse or traditionally marginalized populations. This workshop will focus on this traditionally untouched topic, the intersection of adult bullying, racism,and homophobia; explore the traditionally ignored intersection of race and sexual orientation;and provide bullying prevention strategies.
