About this item

This book, featuring acclaimed research articles on cyber, childhood, and workplace bullying from the peer-reviewed journalViolence and Victims, provides comprehensive coverage of bullying from expert researchers in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, sociology, criminology, counseling, and social work. It reflects our broadening perspectives on bullying that go beyond the archetype of the schoolyard bully, and addresses bullying in adolescence, adulthood, the workplace, and online settings.

Authors present research related to predictive factors for bullying, victims and perpetrators of bullying, and prevention programs. They examine the relationship of gender to bullying and how bullying affects educational outcomes. Articles address the correlations between those who bully, their economic status, and family life. They discuss the burgeoning issue of cyberbullying, an issue for both adolescents and adults that is outpacing the legislation and solutions needed to cope with it. Articles consider issues of bullying in China and Germany, in metropolitan and rural settings. Teachers are not exempt from bullying, as discussed in a study of 70 teachers who were bullied by students. The articles also cover workplace bullying, a common scenario that can have deleterious affects not only on victim and perpetrator, but also on the work culture as a whole.
