The authors discuss various forms of bullying in schools, prevalence rates, the consequences of bullying for the bully, the victim and the school community. Practical bullying prevention strategies that target multiple levels (that is, the individual, classroom, and school) are provided, and best practices guidelines for implementing bullying prevention programs in schools are also discussed.
Although extensively researched, this is quite a short document which doesn't really fulfil the promise of the document's title. Nevertheless there is some useful information including a clear table of 'Multilevel Approaches to Bullying Prevention'. The list of references is almost two pages (from a total of 9 pages) long and may provide useful sources for further information/reading.
