Multiple Perspectives in Persistent Bullying cover

Multiple Perspectives in Persistent Bullying: Capturing and listening to young people's voices recognizes that bullying plays a significant role in influencing the social, emotional, physical and cognitive wellbeing of many children and young people. The authors of this insightful text question what reinforces and perpetuates persistent bullying despite intensive interventions and suggests proactive strategies to address this phenomenon. Multiple perspectives on persistent bullying are provided by giving voice to those who bully, are victimized, are both bully and victim and those who desist their bullying behaviour. This book foregrounds these voices to gain new insights into the characteristics of those who persistently bully and the mechanisms that reinforce their behaviour. Examples drawn on include discussions of turning points, teacher expectancy theory and self-verification.

Multiple Perspectives in Persistent Bullying includes international research that explores bullying in relation to education, psychology and social media, with implications for policy and practice. It is a crucial and fascinating read for anyone wishing to gain insight into the lives of those who are victimized or bully and find proactive support measures involving all stakeholders. These multiple perspectives will inform future school-based interventions and serve to improve the life trajectories and wellbeing of students, their peers and the school community.
