Much is being said about bullying worldwide. The latest UNESCO report shows us a reality that we do not like and we do not know how to alleviate. There are increasing associations and anti-bullying protocols, and thanks to this, a problem that is acting in our society as a silent poison is being made visible, leaving in its victims sequelae that will condition them for the rest of their lives.
If we are really concerned about young people who are harassed at school, it is important that we develop a measured and evaluated prevention and early detection strategy that, over time, yields the desired results, which are none other than a better society.
In the words of Lord Kelvin, a physicist and mathematician of the last century, “What is not defined cannot be measured. What is not measured, cannot be improved. What is not improved, is always degraded. ”
Maybe we should start by defining and measuring bullying in order to improve the figures. With ZeroAcoso you can measure the climate in your school in a completely anonymous and confidential way. The result of this measurement reaches directly to the orientation department that evaluates both the total harassment index and its intensity. In addition, it gives you the percentage of each of the eight types of measured harassment, to help the school to set realistic custom goals.
But why choosing ZeroAcoso?
Because it combines technology with training, allowing intervention. ZeroAcoso is the only anonymous and bidirectional communication channel that puts students in contact with a counselor who can intervene in their educational center. The key of ZeroAcoso it the possibility of improving the student’s direct environment. Real-time communication allows us to know where and when a problem is emerging, and therefore allows us to cut antisocial dynamics before they become bullying. The data collected also allow us to work consciously on the group and get rid of the social reinforcement of the stalker.
Why is ZeroAcoso more effective?
Because it attacks the three most important factors that make it possible for school bullying to continue over time. The silence that surrounds it, the group that allows it and the positive reinforcement that the stalker receives.
With the anonymity of the messages, we get the change of status of the observers, who now can help victims without seeing their security compromised. Students learn to reject both violence and those who promote it. This step from passive partners to victim advocates is the key to changing trends in our society.
