The program Olweus developed, which a number of school officials base their school-wide anti-bullying programs, on depicts an excellent example of one effective approach to counter bullying, victimization and violence.

… Bullying

School bullying has been the focus of numerous studies over the last thirty years, not only within the United States, but internationally. While bullying in some form, whether teasing or pestering, has always existed within the school environment, it has only been during the last few decades that it has grabbed school and community attention. In 1982, when three teenaged boys in Norway committed suicide as a result of extreme harassment from classmates, the Ministry of Education launched a national campaign against bullying in which a prevention program was implemented in every primary and secondary school (Swearer).

… This development among others means that public safety has declined precipitously and that no one has complete immunity from the possibility of physical victimization by violent acts.

However, not all researchers have found a positive relationship between video game playing and violence. For example, Goldstein states that studies do not necessarily demonstrate the actual effects. "Some social psychologists argue that playing violent video games causes aggressive behavior, among other things (desensitization to violence, disinhibition of violence, belief in a 'scary world,' acquisition of cognitive schemas supportive of aggression). Three types of evidence are said to converge in support of this conclusion: correlational studies, field studies (which are typically correlational in nature), and laboratory experiments." Correlational research, he adds, can relate nothing about whether violent video…. [read more]
