Interventions for Bystanders

  • Gayle L. Macklem


Now that most researchers feel that bystanders are the key variable in decreasing bullying, research has begun to explore the behavior of bystanders and their role in bullying behavior with the goal of developing interventions. Lines, Plog, and Porter (2002) suggest that bystanders are a resource to help school psychologists and counselors address bullying in schools. They suggest that it is important to let bystanders know that their anxiety around bullying situations is normal.
