Intervention and Treatment: Relationships

Show Summary Details


Interventions at all levels (the individual, the social and environmental) must include relational components and be delivered in the context of a positive relationship. The therapeutic work includes determining which relationships to target within the levels of the system. Positive relationships with parents, peers and teachers are invaluable protective factors, which can counter the effects of negative occurrences and challenges. The adult-child relationship influences children’s ability to manage in many areas, including bullying situations. This chapter includes: 1) a review of the relational context of therapeutic interventions; and 2) a review of therapeutic interventions that address the relationship levels in bullying. Strategies to increase self-acceptance and esteem for victimized youth are provided.
