Reducing the Effectiveness of Bullying Behavior in Schools
School climates are an important aspect of preventing bullying behavior. Schools can create and foster a positive climate that reduces and prevents bullying and violent behavior through strategies supported by their implementation of PBIS and by adopting features of positive school climates (e.g., positive staff-student relationships, consistency, taking student reports seriously, and effective classroom management training).
Within a school setting, bullying typically occurs in various forms and locations, is more likely to occur toward students who don't defend themselves, most likely occurs when it results in attention from peers, and seldom continues after an adult has interrupted to provide feedback on the behavior. Students who engage in bullying behavior often have the skills to get attention in more appropriate ways. However, they tend to feel rewarded for their behavior when they receive attention from bystanders and a reaction from their target, praise themselves afterward, receive objects (e.g., food, clothing, money, etc.).
