This book provides the background to the research that was conducted using the Peer Relations Assessment Questionnaire (PRAQ) for the Criminology Research Council. The resulting qualitative and quantitative data on how schools in Australia have dealt with bullying is provided. It also describes specific policies, plans and activities that schools have been able to implement to counter bullying.

The effectiveness and impact of various approaches in working with the whole school, introducing pro-social curriculum content and dealing with specific bullying incidents are also discussed. Based on the research and experience, advice and guidance is given on implementing effective anti-bullying strategies within the school.
