Discussion: Bullies at School


One of the most frequent places where children experience bullying is at school. Being different often makes someone an easy target for bullies. Choosing the best course of action to prevent or stop bullying is not always obvious.

In this Discussion, you determine how to intervene most effectively and describe the specific steps you would take to stop bullying at school.

To prepare: Imagine you are a school social worker in an elementary school, and you become aware that there are some “cliques” or “gangs” of fourth or fifth graders that routinely pick on their peers who do well in their schoolwork.

Final Project: Applying Trauma-Informed Principles to a Social Work Practice Setting With Children and Families


Trauma-informed practice goes beyond the skills and techniques used by an individual social worker. Organizations and communities can unintentionally retraumatize clients through their policies and procedures. Social workers have a responsibility to advocate for change.

In this Assignment, you use the knowledge you have gained about trauma-informed practice to evaluate the organizational and operational structure of a setting with which you are familiar. You also make recommendations for changes needed to apply core trauma-informed principles.

Week 10: Special Areas of Practice – Bullying

The Assignment

In Week 4, you explored the concept of trauma-informed services through six principles and 10 implementation domains (SAMHSA, 2014). Now, choose a setting in which you have worked providing social work services (e.g., current/previous field placement, employer, etc.) and explore the principles and implementation domains of trauma-informed services in the setting you have chosen.

Week 10: Special Areas of Practice – Bullying

By Day 7

Submit a 5- to 7-page paper in which you address the following four areas:

  • Describe the agency setting. Is it public or private, non-profit or for-profit? Is the agency’s primary goal to serve trauma survivors? Approximately what percentage of clients would be defined as trauma survivors?
  • Explain how the setting demonstrates each of the 6 key principles. Provide examples.
  • Using the sample questions on page 14-16 as a guide, assess each of the 10 implementation domains at the agency and explain which key principles are evident in each domain.
  • Provide specific recommendations for improving each of the principles that are not well implemented. Be specific about (1) organizational, (2) environmental, (3) programmatic, and/or (4) administrative changes that would need to occur for your agency to implement a trauma-informed approach.
  • Explain potential barriers to creating trauma-informed services in this setting and how you might address these barriers.

The paper should be presented in a clear and coherent manner and reflect critical thinking and a clear understanding of trauma-informed services. It should adhere to APA guidelines.
