Description

These timely intervention strategies make your school safer for everyone!

Bullying Behavior: Current Issues, Research, and Interventions provides the most up-to-date reports on the dynamics of bullying, including who bullies and why, who the victims are, and how depression and anxiety are correlated with bullying. It also presents detailed case studies of successful anti-bullying strategies for both local schools and national campaigns. Drawing on national and international clinical research, this book is indispensable for teachers and school administrators, therapists and child psychologists, social workers, child advocates and counselors, court personnel, probation officers, and education policymakers.

Bullying Behavior addresses all the issues of bullying, including:

  • preventing sexual harassment
  • models of bully and victim behavior
  • the roles of dominance and bullying in the development of early heterosexual relationships
  • psychosocial correlates in bullying and victimization
  • peer influences during early adolescence
  • students who are passive observers to the victimization of others
