Flourishing at School & at Home: An Anti-Bullying Wellbeing Program for School Counsellors

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Being bullied is a stressful experience – in fact it is one of the most
stressful experiences there is that we can face. Bullying occurs in every school as international research shows and we now better
understand that bullying is physically, socially and psychologically
damaging, with the hurt extending beyond the victim to the bully
and the bystanders who witness the activity. As such
it is very important to develop successful intervention to help students cope
with bullying, including cyberbullying. Our research suggests
however, that students have a very limited repertoire of strategies
for dealing with bullying generally, and that they need specific
training in making use of effective coping strategies for different
types of bullying. In this presentation an Australian anti-bullying
program (The ‘Coping with Bullying Intervention’) which is the
outcome of 20 years of research at Flinders University, including
the successful delivery of the programme in countries such as
Japan, Greece, Malta will be outlined and the implications for
school counsellors will be described.
