How Schools Counter Bullying

Policies and Procedures in Selected Australian Schools

By E. Barrington Thomas, Ken Rigby

This book provides the background to research that was conducted using the Peer Relations Assessment Questionnaire (PRAQ) for the Criminology Research Council (Australia). The resulting qualitative and quantitative data is provided on how schools in Australia have dealt with bullying. The book also describes the specific policies, plans, and activities that schools have been able to strategically implement to counter bullying. The effectiveness and impact of various approaches in working with the whole school - introducing pro-social curriculum content and dealing with specific bullying incidents - are also discussed.
