Addressing bullying and cyberbullying in schools: Translating theory into practice

Phillip Slee, Barbara Spears, Marilyn Campbell, Donna Cross

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors argue that research shows clearly that bullying occurs in every school, and that significant negative physical and mental health outcomes are associated with it. However, they comment, students have a very limited repertoire of strategies for dealing with bullying generally and with the new forms of cyberbullying specifically.

In this paper the authors outline what is currently known about bullying, including cyberbullying, its impact on students, how theory can assist in developing interventions to assist and support students to cope with bullying, and some implications for schools.
