Bullying, Victimization, and Peer Harassment: A Handbook of Prevention and Intervention

˹
Psychology Press, 2007 - 428 ˹

A comprehensive examination of theory, research, prevention and intervention, and professional practice issues - in one source.

Teasing, shunning, and bullying can have serious detrimental effects on both victim and perpetrator. Bullying, Victimization, and Peer Harassment: A Handbook of Prevention and Intervention comprehensively gathers emerging research, theory, and effective practice on this subject into one invaluable source. This thorough review of a wide spectrum of innovative, evidence-based practices targets the complex problems of victimization, peer harassment, and bullying in our schools. Interventions range from individuals and their peers to broad, systems-level change within schools and communities. The challenge of prevention is also explored, using the latest studies as a practical foundation. Suggestions are provided detailing effective strategies to make changes in the culture within schools while offering directions for future research and practice.

Bullying, Victimization, and Peer Harassment discusses research on current intervention programs now in place that, until now, has never been evaluated. Several of the studies address middle school issues and multi-ethnic populations, including those from the United States, Canada, and Europe. Peer sexual harassment and dating-related aggression are examined that includes and goes beyond traditional views of bullying and peer intimidation. This valuable handbook provides concise yet extensive information on the most current theory, empirical research, practice guidelines, and suggestions for preparing schools for programmatic initiatives.

Topics in Bullying, Victimization, and Peer Harassment include:

  • theory and conceptual issues in victimization, bullying, and peer harassment
  • assessment
  • results from a four-year longitudinal study on peer victimization in early adolescents
  • youth perceptions toward bullying
  • high school students' victimization profiles
  • immigrant children and victimization
  • evaluating an adolescent violence prevention program
  • a school-based intervention program
  • peer group intervention
  • interventions for victims
  • multiple perspectives involving sexual harassment
  • school-wide approaches to prevention and intervention
  • and much more!

Bullying, Victimization, and Peer Harassment is a crucial resource for researchers and mental health professionals who work in schools and who work with children and their families, such as school psychologists, counselors, clinical child psychologists, social workers, and community psychologists.
