Explore the latest research and theory on bullying with this international reference from leading voices in the field 

The two-volume Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Bullying delivers a comprehensive exploration of a wide range of research on bullying, broadly defined. School bullying is dealt with at length, but there is also coverage of college and workplace bullying and bullying within sports settings, prisons, families, and elder care residential homes.  

Containing contributions from leading scholars on five continents, the book summarizes the latest theories, findings, developmental aspects, and interventions relevant to bullying in a variety of settings. With up-to-date information on rapidly developing topics like sibling bullying, cyberbullying, bias-based bullying, migration and bullying, dating violence, and economic evaluation of bullying prevention programs, The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Bullying offers readers a complete view of a wide array of bullying behaviors. 

The insightful and up-to-date information contained within the two volumes is destined to become the standard reference for bullying-related research and theory. Readers will benefit from: 

  • Fulsome material covering research and practice conventions in countries and regions including Europe, North America, South America, Australasia, Japan, South Korea, India, Mainland China and Hong Kong, the Arab countries, and sub-Saharan Africa  
  • A comprehensive discussion on the correlates and outcomes of taking part in bullying, as well as being a victim of bullying 
  • An exploration of a variety of strategies to deal with bullying incidents, including proactive, reactive, and peer support approaches 
  • An analysis of different kinds of bullying, faith-based bullying, and disablist bullying, including racist and ethnic bullying, sexist and sexual bullying, and homophobic and transphobic bullying 

Perfect for postgraduate students in programs dealing with bullying in virtually any conceivable context, The Wiley-Blackwell Handbook of Bullying will also earn a place in the libraries of researchers and practitioners in fields as diverse as psychology, sociology, social work, medicine, criminology, child care, and elder studies.
