Individuals with alopecia areata, especially kids, are frequent targets of bullying. When adults respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior, they send the message that it is not acceptable. Research shows this can stop bullying behavior over time. Parents, school staff, and other adults in the community can help kids prevent bullying by talking about it, building a safe school environment, and creating a community-wide bullying prevention strategy. In this webinar, learn how you can be a leader in preventing bullying in your community.
