Guideline for Head Teachers


8. Implementing direct intervention programs


Although most overall teacher performance should be preventive, the whole school has to be prepared to address potential bullying episodes. Interventions will be needed with the aggressor and the victim. For such purposes, it is advisable that teachers have certain knowledge of programs designed for this kind of pupils, as the sooner the problem is identified the quicker the action is taken. The steps to follow would be:

  • To design a database of resources to be used in the action with pupils directly involved: victims and aggressors
  • To identify a boy or a girl directly involved
  • To identify the reasons of the involvement
  • To look for the most appropriate program or action and the teacher who will develop it.
  • To develop the program with a specific deadline with the avoidance of being permanent.


  • Quality circles
    Section of the book “Tackling Bullying in Your School: A practical handbook for teachers” that describes what are and how to develop the quality circles.
