Abstract (Summary)

Bullying is a global phenomenon that affects all children of every background and results in negative physical, emotional, and psychological consequences. More specifically, school bullying has become a social concern for educators, parents, students, and researchers in the United States. A national study on school bullying revealed that 30% of sixth- through 10th-grade students reported being involved in bullying at school to some degree: 11% as victims, 13% as bullies, and 6% as both bullies and victims. Many bullying prevention programs that have been implemented in primary and secondary schools across the nation have yielded conflicting results. The purpose of this systematic review of the literature was to gain better knowledge and understanding of the risk and protective factors associated with school bullying and to evaluate the outcomes of bullying prevention programs implemented in American schools.
