How teachers address cases of bullying in schools: a comparison of five reactive approaches - Dr. Ken Rigby.
While much effort goes into preventing bullying in schools, many young people continue to be bullied after they have told a teacher. What do teachers do when students come to them and how successful are each of the ways they respond?
Dr Rigby examines the range of strategies used in schools to address cases of bullying, the most common of which is disciplinary sanctions applied to the person/s doing the bullying. Other methods include Restorative Practice, Mediation, the Support Group Method and the Method of Shared Concern.
The article describes and discusses each of the intervention strategies, the extent to which students are involved in resolving the bully/victim problem - including those not directly involved - and the effectiveness of each in stopping or reducing subsequent bullying.
