Hazler, Richard J.; Carney, JoLynn V.
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, Education and Development, v41 n2 p129-49 Fall 2002
An examination of peer-on-peer abuse (e.g., bullying, harassment) and peer-on-self abuse (e.g., suicide, self-mutilation) prevention programs identified more effective ways to involve youth in similar programs. Stronger programs emphasized youth empowerment through active roles in program development and reaching out with understanding and support to peers and adults. (Contains 79 references.) (Author)
