Dealing effectively with the problem of bullying in schools is now recognised as a major challenge for educators of young people. Successful interventions to stop, or even reduce, bullying in schools are difficult to achieve; however, the case for improving the effectiveness of school interventions in cases of bullying is overwhelming. Bullying Interventions in Schools examines in detail the six major intervention methods: the traditional disciplinary approach; strengthening the victim; mediation; restorative practice; the support group method; the method of shared concern.
