Bullying in schools: What is the problem, and how can educators solve it?

an article by Dagmar Strohmeier (University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Linz, Austria) and Gil G. Noam (McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School) published in New Directions for Youth Development Volume 2012 Issue 133 (Spring 2012)


This chapter reviews recent research on bullying from an educator’s perspective. It is well known that bullying, a serious issue in schools, can be prevented when educators intervene. But research has shown that it is difficult for educators to detect bullying situations in their school and intervene competently and effectively. This chapter examines how educators can detect bullying, how they can best tackle serious cases of bullying, and how they can best prevent bullying in the long run.
