Childhood Bullying: Awareness, Interventions, and a Model for Change

In this Issue Brief we reviewed the prevalence of bullying, identified bullying and the signs of a bully, and discussed innovative strategies for addressing the challenges of bullying. Bullying has long-term consequences for both the bullied and those doing the bullying. Research shows that bullies are at a higher risk of dropping out of school, getting into fights, vandalizing, shoplifting, and substance use.If there is no intervention they are also four to six times more likely than their non-bullying peers to have at least one criminal conviction by age 24.
