Once we understand how bullies are made, our attempts to unmake them can be more effective and long lasting. Most prevailing approaches to this problem assume that bullying is either learned behaviour or the result of a failure to acquire social skills. This presentation will dissect the bully syndrome to reveal its deep instinctive roots in the dynamics of attachment and vulnerability. This understanding will then inform interventions that are more likely to be successful.
