Bullying Prevention Programs

While intervention against bullying is particularly important to reduce the suffering of the victims, it is also highly desirable to counteract these tendencies for the sake of the aggressive student, as bullies are much more likely than other students to expand their antisocial behaviors. Research shows that reducing aggressive, antisocial behavior may also reduce substance use and abuse. The efforts of school staff are directed toward improving peer relations and making the school a safe and positive place for students to learn and develop.
