Nine solutions to stop bullying behaviour

Bullying behaviour is occurring everywhere, from the workplace to sports clubs, schools, in home and on the internet. It can harm the physical and mental health of those targeted by it. If you're having to deal with this type of behaviour - either seeing others being targeted or those being targeted coming to you for help - it is a difficult problem to tackle. Intervening in bullying behaviour: Nine ways to take direct action is a book that can help by giving a range of strategies and remedies. If you have the responsibility for finding a solution, this book offers nine methods to choose from.

The nine approaches

The book identifies ways to intervene whether you have witnessed the bullying or it has been reported to you. This practical guide contains step by step instructions on how to use the following nine different approaches:

  1. Direct response
  2. Strengthening the target
  3. Mediation
  4. Restorative justice
  5. Collaborative problem-solving and resolution
  6. Support group method
  7. Method of shared concern
  8. Punishment
  9. Referral to authorities

For each approach learn how it is used, the aim, any relevant theory, along with its strengths and weaknesses. The types of bullying behaviours that are used varies a great deal, as does the situations it occurs in. So the same approach is never going to be suitable or work all of the time. You need to choose the right tool for the job which is why this book gives you a range of options.

That can mean confusion about which intervention you should use in which situation. Help is provided in the last chapter to work out your best option. It provides the Response Options to Bullying Behaviour (ROBB) model to compare and understand the strengths and weaknesses of each approach, so you can choose the best option for each situation.

Who this book might not help

If you are the target of bullying behaviour, the solutions in this book are not designed to be used by you, rather they are designed for you to participate in. It is not possible that you can facilitate the approaches in the book and also be the person who is the target. There needs to be someone else who can do that for you. However, this might be just the book that the 'someone else' needs to help them to facilitate a resolution. I really hope that you are able to find a resolution for your situation quickly.
