About the Book

This study provides a clear picture of how bullying affects students and schools in the country of Georgia. The results of the study outline victimization trends according to factors such as region, school size, student gender, age, and parental occupation. The study offers practical recommendations to teachers, parents, and educators who want to prevent bullying and tackle its complex psychological consequences. Some of the questions considered in the study are the following: • What different forms does bullying take? • What factors lead individuals toward becoming bullies or victims? • What effect does bullying have on the teaching and learning process? The main hypothesis of the study is that a school’s environment can be a key determinant of bullying behavior, and when school culture does not allow the realization of aggression, fewer students become victims. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, a counselor, or school administrator, the detailed research in this book will serve as an essential resource to prevent and eliminate the practices of bullying and to help students succeed.
