This guide aims to provide Australian practitioners and other professionals with information on school bullying and ways to work with and support families with a child who is bullying others. It provides an overview of the issue of bullying, how to identify children who bully, and approaches to managing bullying. Information is provided that addresses: assessing the prevalence and nature of the child’s bullying behavior, including using psychometric resources and questions; examining risk and protective factors associated with bullying by pinpointing where the problems are in the family and the child who is affected, and identifying conditions that can protect against those problems; and supporting children who bully and their families by providing an overview of what works in bullying intervention and key issues to consider in engaging and supporting families. Warning signs that the child is a danger to himself or others are listed and co-occurring mental health issues and the benefits of cognitive behavior therapy are discussed. 20 references.
