Bullying in Schools: School Counselors' Responses to Three Types of Bullying Incidents
Jacobsen, Kristen E.; Bauman, Sheri
Professional School Counseling, v11 n1 p1-9 Oct 2007
School counselors responded to an Internet survey containing vignettes describing physical, verbal, and relational bullying. Respondents rated relational bullying the least serious of the three types, they had the least empathy for victims of relational bullying, and they were least likely to intervene in relational bullying incidents. Counselors with anti-bullying training rated relational bullying as more serious and were more likely to intervene in relational bullying incidents than were those without training. Implications for counselor education are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
