Bullying - A Social Psychological Perspective
Bullying is a growing problem which must be resolved between children, schools and parents. How can we promote understanding and find new ways of thinking about bullying from a social psychological perspective? The focus of this book is on the values, attitudes and norms of individuals and groups and the social context where the interaction between the individual and the world around him takes place.
The reader will, through working with the book, gain a fundamental knowledge about the psychological factors and mechanisms that underlie bullying. Moreover, the reader will gain insight and knowledge into how social psychology can be used in preventive work against bullying.
The book is based on interactive animations, film, photographs, text, and student-produced projects. The reader is actively involved, e.g. in the design and development of a bullying prevention campaign and bullying policies at their school.
The book is designed to be used at several levels in the field of psychology teaching, including middle school, secondary school, upper secondary and high school, continuing and adult education as well as interdisciplinary projects and courses related to the topic of bullying and psychology.
