Working with families whose child is bullying: an evidence-based guide for practitioners

23 Jul 2014
Description

This guide aims to provide practitioners and other professionals with information on school bullying and ways to work with and support families with a child who is bullying others.

Abstract

When children bully others at school, they are at significant risk of continuing this pattern of antisocial behaviour and having mental health concerns as they grow older. While bullying is often labelled as a school-related issue, it is also a family issue, as bullying is a behaviour often affected by the family environment. As such, working with families to interrupt the continuity from school bullying to later adverse life outcomes could be viewed as a form of early intervention for preventing crime, as well as a method of promoting health.
