Bias-based bullying in schools has received limited attention over the years because of the heightened normal bullying activities such as hitting, kicking, shoving, spitting, derogatory language, name calling, face-to-face confrontations, spreading rumors or lies, social isolation and/or exclusion. However, bias-based bullying has affected school students who have different sexual orientation, disability, obesity, immigrant status, race, and religion. Bias-based bullying has been found to have a negative impact on student achievement and academic motivation (social and emotional development) and sense of safety in their school environment. In this webinar, a brief review of the prevalence and psychological impact of bias-based bullying will be discussed. Recommendations for the role of school counselors in the identification and prevention of bias-based bullying will be reviewed. Implications for school counselors will be mentioned.
