Hawkins, D. Lynn; Pepler, Debra J.; Craig, Wendy M.
Social Development, v10 n4 p512-27 2001
Examined peer intervention in bullying among 58 first through sixth graders, using naturalistic observations on school playgrounds. Found that peers were present during 88 percent of bullying episodes and intervened in 19 percent. Interventions toward the bully were more likely to be aggressive. Interventions toward the victim or the dyad were more likely to be nonaggressive. (Author/KB)
