Now Available! Dr. DeFoore's New Book GOODFINDING
by Matthew Kuehlhorn
This is a great site. I really appreciate what Dr. DeFoore is offering here.
I love to work with people of all ages and every age group can run into bullying. It is usually most prevalent when we are young though.
On Ezine Articles there is a post about bullying which describes the 4-steps a person can take if they are being bullied. It is echoed in this article so I thought I would share it again.
* Step one is to build a team. No one can be successful alone and a mentor is one resource we can all benefit from.
* Step two is to be accountable. It is not your fault, though by taking responsibility you regain the power and control of your life. This is an important part of making change in life.
* Step three is to reflect and pull apart your actions and thoughts that may have been responsible for your being bullied. Again, a mentor and team help with this tremendously.
* Step four is to then adopt new behaviors and practice them. Mentors can help with feedback and in support of changing behaviors and habits.
None of this is easy. The team is the most important part of the puzzle here.

Response from Dr. DeFoore
Hello Matthew, and thanks for telling your story here. I published your article in my Professional Articles section, since you are a colleague in the field. I like what you're offering here, and what you offer on your web site.
I agree that forming the team is the most challenging step in the process. This requires good Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence skills, which are more rare than we'd like them to be.
Keep up the good work!
My very best to you,
P.P.S. If you got something of value here, we would also greatly appreciate it if you would provide a written testimonial about the site, Dr. DeFoore's help, or one of our products.
