Question and answer

Why is the issue of bullying of particular interest to you?

I am particularly interested in promoting resilience and mental health in young people. I think that we should do everything that we can to develop a society where people are compassionate and kind, rather than cruel.

Where do you believe you have made a difference in your field?

I have produced materials on bullying prevention and challenging kids that are used in 40 countries.

How does your area of expertise help you to contribute to NCAB?

As a clinical psychologist with lots of experience in helping people who have been bullied, I know that prevention programs won't ever stop all bullying. We need to help victims and peer groups to feel empowered to create positive environments.
