Children Who Help Victims of Bullying: Implications for Practice
Porter, James R.; Smith-Adcock, Sondra
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v33 n3 p196-205 Sep 2011
Over the years, literature on the phenomenon of bullying has evolved from treating bullying as an individual behavior to understanding it as a group process. Other than those of the bully and the victim, researchers have identified several roles children assume in bullying situations, with some assuming a pro-social role, often called the "defender," in bullying scenarios. Practice literature continues to concentrate its attention narrowly on the bully and the victim, rather than on defenders. Understanding the individual and social circumstances related to defending suggests new avenues for practitioners interested in promoting improved peer relations in schools.
