I know there are a ton of resources out there on bullying. I’m also skeptical about a lot of it being useful.
So I’m just going to start off list with two resources I think are good ones, and hope that readers will contribute a lot more.

(1/thread) Been doing student focus groups on equity/justice issues in schools across the US. One thing that keeps coming up is how meaningless & evasive popular anti-bullying programs are. Here’s what I’m hearing from students in schools that embrace these programs:

Why Bullying Is Too Narrow a Lens for Addressing Conflict in Middle School is from Edutopia
I like the Australian site, Bullying. No Way! http://bullyingnoway.gov.au It has different sections for young people of different ages, parents and teachers. I appreciate the thought that has gone into the language they use to explain and suggest to kids.
My favorite writings on bullying are from Peter Gray.
Thanks for sharing all the information on bullying! Being a victim myself I have a passion for preventing bullying. All educators, parents and administrators need this information to help their children and students be successful. I hope to be able to help my future students with this issue!
Students have been making “How to UnMake A Bully” movies with me for a few years, and they are in use all over the world.
We also do a school residency program (so far in over 10 districts and 30 schools in NY, WA, and Australia!) where classes write, produce and complete 60-second PSA commercials in just 9 hours! Together with The Don’t Wait® Project we combine tech, film, Common Core, real-world experience, ELA, anti-bullying and character education into an unforgettable week per school! HUGE feedback so far, including some students who started their own coalition in honor of our program. We have also seen students stand up during our discussions to admit to having bullied, and apologize to their friends in an effort to start making things right.
I can send links if you’re interested.
Thank you for your post.
As a father and teacher, I would like to share four Websites that I hope would be helpful to those wishing to better understand and more effectively address bullying:

Children who don’t speak English are more likely to be victims of bullying even in preschool, according to a study by Chang et al. (2007) in the Journal of Early Education and Research. Here is a resource to be used by teachers to help children learn communication skills that break down language barriers to prevent bullying: http://www.languagecastle.com/2014/10/october-prevent-bullying-month/
http://www.jw.org has an encouraging video on bullying– how victims can deal with bullies and maintain self respect.
Larry, as many of us work with employed adult learners, please remember that many of our students are subject to workplace bullying. After years of extraordinary stress, my healthcare provider helped me understand that my manager showed a consistent pattern of bullying her employees. We all tend to think of bullying by peers, but it happens with those who manage as well. Learn more here: http://www.workplacebullying.org/individuals/problem/being-bullied/
