At one time, school bullying may have been viewed as a "rite of passage" which built "character." Today, however, it's no longer regarded as just something that happens during playground routines.

Educators, health and mental health practitioners, parents, and community members are realizing that bullying is a serious problem that can lead to more severe long-term problems for individuals and communities. Some experts believe that bullying should be considered a special form of child abuse-sometimes called "peer abuse," the cruelty of children to each other.

This course examines the causes and effects of bullying, prevention techniques and programs, screening, treatment options, and legal/ethical issues surrounding bullying.
