How you can help
● Be sensitive to your child's reaction
to questions about being bullied.
Addressing bully-victim issues is a
complex task -- professional support and
advice may be needed.
● Discuss school -- class, sport, free time,
how they feel about these activities.
● Encourage them to find their own
solutions. Brainstorm and role-play ideas

which gradually lengthen, at the child's
pace, as competence and confidence

● Discuss concerns with school officials
-- it is their responsibility to provide a
safe learning environment.

Does our soul continue its journey into
another realm, another dimension?
The mystery of life after death remains locked
behind a spiritual door for most people.
When we query our own existence we begin
to seek and find answers.
Utilising deep hypnosis techniques, we explore
and unlock the past to aid the future.
By releasing negative beliefs and patterning
we add new dimension and meaning to life.

● Do not personally confront bullies -- you
may aggravate the problem.
● Report bullying to school officials even
if your child is not the target. This will
demonstrate to your child that this
behaviour will not be tolerated.
Dr. Anna Cuomo-Granston, Ph.D. (Neurology,
Psychophysiology), M.App.Psych. (Clinical Psychology), has
worked with children who have been bullied and who bully,
and with their parents. Her approach to treatment has primarily
been client focused and cognitive-behaviourally based.
