REVIEWER’S COMMENTS ON THE DOCUMENT:

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.
