The Method of Shared Concern as an Intervention Technique to Address Bullying in Schools: An Overview and Appraisal
Rigby, Ken
Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v15 n1 p27-34 Jul 2005
This article outlines and appraises the method of shared concern as developed by Anatol Pikas and applied as a technique for resolving bully-victim problems in schools. It includes a description of how the method can be applied in schools, and critically examines some objections that have been raised to its use. These objections are shown to be largely based on misunderstandings of the method. It is concluded that the method of shared concern is, in fact, well grounded theoretically and can be highly effective in reducing bullying when employed by trained practitioners, especially in addressing problems in which there is group involvement by perpetrators of bullying in secondary schools.
