Bullying: it seems like something we’re always hearing about, but never getting into the details of. Danielle Matthew, LMFT stops by to talk to us all about it: what are the different types of bullying? How do people experience bullying across their lifespan? How do we support victims of bullying, empower bystanders, and healthily address the bullies themselves? We touch on all of this and more.

- After we stopped recording, Danielle recommended books by Annie Fox to Holly for proactively talking to her kids about bullying
- Solution Team is a program offered by NoBully
