Bullying’s Impact on Girls

leave a comment »

Medscape has a new CE offering on the impact of bullying on girls. Seems that a new study indicates that girls have far more long-term psychological sequelae from bullying than boys, a finding particularly interesting to me as the mother of a girl-child. If you’d like to get better acquainted with the study (or at least a brief synopsis of the study), you can check it out and get 0.25 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 credit (or for my nursing friends, .50 contact hours) for your efforts. As always, these offerings are free, but require site registration to participate.
