Bullying: Proactive Physical Educators' Contribution to School-Wide Prevention
Gibbone, Anne; Manson, Mara
Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (JOPERD), v81 n7 p20-24 Sep 2010
Although not a new concept, bullying continues to be a problem in schools across the nation. Bullying involves the intention to hurt the feelings of the victim. Research demonstrates that victims of bullying often experience low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, insecurity, oversensitivity, introversion, and withdrawal from social activities. This article addresses fundamental concepts of victimization, including cyberbullying trends, educational issues, physical education curricula, anti-bullying management in physical education, and school-wide intervention.
