Name change for ABC project, Bullied.
ABC series is looking for Qld-based teens aged 14 and over for documentary series on bullying.
Based on a Dutch format, the project partners with ReachOut Australia, and will be filmed in Queensland by KEO Australia and Lune Media with teens over the age of 14.
Psychologist Professor Marilyn Campbell of QUT has also joined the series. Currently Editor of Journal of Psychologists and Counsellors in Schools, she will ensure the welfare of series participants and provide on-screen expertise.
“I’m delighted to join the series co-producers KEO & Lune as we embark on a journey to reveal more about the complex issue of bullying here in Australia. This is an exciting opportunity to address a very difficult problem for our young people, which has been shown to be harmful for all concerned,” she said.
“Bullying is a complex relationship problem which is deeply embedded in our society and for viewers this will be an educative program that will help everyone identify bullying behaviours and how to deal with it – be they young people who are bullied, teachers, family members or peers.”
The show is also looking for Queensland-based teenagers aged 14 or over who are being bullied. For further info visit stopbullying.tv
