Both national and cross-national estimates indicate that bullying and victimization are fairly prevalent among school-age children and adolescents, with prevalence estimates varying for 3% to 37% for bullies and from 9% to 32% for victimization. Moreover, recent estimates suggest that such rates may have increased since 1999 and subsequently stabilized, with an average estimate of about 10%. Both children who are bullies and children who are victims of bullying show elevated rates of various indicators of psychosocial distress. This chapter evaluates school-based strategies aimed at reducing bullying and bullying-related incidents of victimization.
