Altruism as an Antidote to Bullying.
Hoover, John H.; Anderson, Julie W.
Reclaiming Children and Youth: Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Problems, v8 n2 p88-91 Sum 1999
Compares Staub's perspective regarding development and encouragement of altruism with existing information about school bullying. Recommends suggestions for bullying intervention culled from research on the development of altruism. Reports that during bullying episodes, the degree to which a student is altruistic will predict whether that individual will intervene on behalf of the victim. (Author/GCP)
