Beyond bullying : whole-school approach


The author explains what bullying is, how a whole-school approach works and what educators need to do if their whole-school program is to succeed. Talk with schools about interventions to reduce bullying and you will discover that the whole-school approach has become the default program. However, there are many misconceptions in relation to the effectiveness and implementation of such an approach. With this in mind, the author provides further insight into what bullying is; explains what is and how effective is a whole-school approach; and outlines the minimum requirements for whole-school programs to succeed. To provide teachers and principals with practical advice in terms of policies and practices the author draws on both the empirical evidence and experiences obtained through his research and practice.
