Bullying in Schools: How Successful Can Interventions Be?
Peter K. Smith, Debra Pepler, Ken Rigby
Cambridge University Press, Oct 21, 2004 - Education - 334 pages
Bullying in Schools is the first comparative account of the major intervention projects against school bullying that have been carried out by educationalists and researchers since the 1980s, across Europe, North America and Australasia. Working on the principle that we can learn from both sucesses and failures, this book examines the processes as well as the outcomes, and critically assesses the likely reasons for success or failure. With contributions from leading researchers in the field, Bullying in Schools is an important addition to the current debate on tackling school bullying.
