Treatment Intervention, Collaboration, and Consultation

Show Summary Details


This chapter provides an overview of treatment issues (for example anxiety, depression, aggression and anti-social and delinquent behaviours) related to children and adolescents’ involvement in bullying, as the aggressor or as the victim. It is imperative that school-based and community practitioners become familiar with the various types of and dynamics involved in bullying and that they are knowledgeable about the impact on children and youth who bully and who are victimized. The relevance of applying an ecological systems lens to bullying problems is emphasized so that the practitioner can probe and account for the many interacting factors that influence bullying, all of which must occur within the frame of a therapeutic relationship. Case examples are provided.

Keywords: treatment issues; anxiety; depression; aggression; anti-social behaviours
