Guideline for Students


1. Understanding the Complexity of the Phenomenon of Bullying


How can students understand the meaning and the main results of the research on the topic of bullying ? Are they able to understand and recognize the different types of bullying - physical and emotional violence, constant teasing, sexual harassment, cyber-bullying - can they detect the complexity of the phenomenon and can the very language of the research be accessible and easy to understand? The answer is not simple, and perhaps there is not a single answer. Certainly, the educational workshops held in primary school can be of significant help, together with the use of multimedia tools, the direct reading of testimonies and stories, and similar actions. Simple theory is not enough. It can't capture the students' interest and attention, and it doesn't give students the necessary awareness of the problem, letting them acquire the right behavior to face the problem.
