The bullying issue
What works to stop bullying and what doesn't work
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Criminology, anti-bullying programs are having negative effects and actually making the bullying situation worse instead of better. Researchers found that in order for a bully prevention program to truly work it must change the school's climate. This means changing values and expectations of youth, teachers and school administration.
