Covert bullying

Donna Cross led researchers from Edith Cowan University to investigate the prevalence and impact of covert bullying in Australian schools. The study, The Australian Covert Bullying Prevalence Study, was commissioned by the Australian Government.

NCAB members Barbara Spears from the University of South Australia and Phillip Slee from Flinders University were involved in the qualitative, Covert Bullying study commissioned by the Australian Government into the human dimension of covert and cyberbullying, Behind the Scenes: Insights into the Human Dimension of Covert Bullying. It has led to better understanding of the issues and their impact on schools and their communities.
