Protecting Children Against Bullying and Its Consequences (Paperback) (Izabela Zych & David P.
about this item
This book will explore the complex social and psychological phenomenon in which some students act as aggressors and others become victims of it. The book will also discuss children who witness bullying but rarely act to stop it. Bullying can have short and long term serious effects on the psychological and physical wellbeing of victims leading to depression, suicidal ideation and behavior or violence, offending and drug use later in life. Bullying also affects the school community as a whole, with serious consequences for students and teachers, decreasing the quality of the school-wide climate. The authors focus on preventing long-term undesirable outcomes, including protective factors that prevent bullies becoming offenders and protective factors that prevent victims becoming depressed. Thus, this book is going to be useful for researchers, practitioners and policy makers interested in knowing and fostering factors that protect children against bullying and its consequences.
