Bullying: Effective Strategies for Long Term Improvement tackles the sensitive issue of bullying in schools and offers practical guidance on how to deal successfully with the issue in the long term. The authors examine how bullying begins, the impact of bullying on the victimised child, and how the extent of bullying in schools can be reliably measured and assessed. They go on to explain how to set up anti-bullying initiatives which will maintain their effectiveness over the years. The complexity of the bullying process is emphasised throughout, but care is taken to outline clearly the actions that can be taken which will substantially reduce bullying in the long term. The book is an outcome of over 10 years research into bullying. The authors draw on their own major studies and international research to provide real workable solutions to the problem of bullying, which are illustrated by case study examples throughout. The book is essential reading for school managers, teachers, student teachers and researchers determined to tackle the issues of bullying head on.

Bullying has long been tolerated as a rite of passage among children and adolescents. There is an implication that individuals who are bullied must have "asked for" this type of treatment, or deserved it. Sometimes, even the child who is bullied begins to internalize this idea. For many years, there has been a general acceptance and collective shrug when it comes to a child or adolescent with greater social capital or power pushing around a child perceived as subordinate. But bullying is not developmentally appropriate; it should not be considered a normal part of the typical social grouping that occurs throughout a child's life. Although bullying behavior endures through generations, the milieu is changing. Historically, bulling has occurred at school, the physical setting in which most of childhood is centered and the primary source for peer group formation. In recent years, however, the physical setting is not the only place bullying is occurring. Technology allows for an entirely new type of digital electronic aggression, cyberbullying, which takes place through chat rooms, instant messaging, social media, and other forms of digital electronic communication. Composition of peer groups, shifting demographics, changing societal norms, and modern technology are contextual factors that must be considered to understand and effectively react to bullying in the United States. Youth are embedded in multiple contexts and each of these contexts interacts with individual characteristics of youth in ways that either exacerbate or attenuate the association between these individual characteristics and bullying perpetration or victimization. Recognizing that bullying behavior is a major public health problem that demands the concerted and coordinated time and attention of parents, educators and school administrators, health care providers, policy makers, families, and others concerned with the care of children, this report evaluates the state of the science on biological and psychosocial consequences of peer victimization and the risk and protective factors that either increase or decrease peer victimization behavior and consequences.
