Adolescent's Unambiguous Knowledge of Overcoming Bullying and Developing Resilience
Garner, Ian W.; Boulton, Michael J.
Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, v9 n2 p199-207 2016
Antibullying interventions have been implemented in schools in an attempt to reduce bullying. However, school-based bullying is still prevalent in many schools across the United Kingdom. Therefore, antibullying interventions should aim to prevent bullying and also reduce the effects of bullying by educating victims about resilience against bullying. A total of 173 participants were recruited from schools in the north west of the United Kingdom. From the 173 participants, 168 participants completed the questionnaire. Results indicated that few participants possess adequate knowledge of resilience against bullying. This suggests adolescents do not possess sufficient knowledge of how to overcome bullying and develop resilience.
