The Bernese Program against Victimization in Kindergarten and Elementary School
Alsaker, Francoise D.; Valkanover, Stefan
New Directions for Youth Development, n133 p15-28 Spr 2012
The Bernese Program against Victimization in Kindergarten and Elementary School was designed to be adaptable to the very different situations and needs encountered by teachers in kindergarten and elementary school. The basic principle of the program is to enhance teachers' ability to address bullying. The program consists of six modules, each corresponding to a specific topic. Teachers are urged to implement the tasks discussed during the meetings in their own classes during the time between the meetings. The program has been evaluated using a prevention-control pre- and post-test design. The informants were teachers as well as children. There was a significant interaction between time (pre- and post-test) and group (prevention and control) as to victimization. Changes in teachers' attitudes toward bullying and their ability to cope with such problems were also significant and in the expected direction.
