The Behavioral Ecological Model as a Framework for School-Based Anti-Bullying Health Promotion Interventions
Dresler-Hawke, Emma; Whitehead, Dean
Journal of School Nursing, v25 n3 p195-204 2009
This article presents a conceptual strategy which uses the Behavioral Ecological Model (BEM) as a health promotion framework to guide school-based bullying awareness programs and subsequent anti-bullying strategies for school nursing practice. Anti-bullying frameworks and tools are scarce despite the extent of the problem of bullying. This article reviews existing literature centered on the BEM and illustrates how the model can be applied to the school-setting. This is the first time that a multilevel framework has been proposed for school-based anti-bullying in the form of a model. The BEM is a useful tool for assisting in the development of more comprehensive programs to influence anti-bullying intervention in school-based nursing practice. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
