A major contribution of this handbook lies in informing schools about resources for addressing bullying. Teachers are no longer alone in their endeavours to counter bullying, as an increasing volume of resources is now available. As well as resources providing knowledge about bullying in schools, there are also, and more importantly, resources that help to develop the kinds of skills that are needed to deal with the practical issues of the day. These include how to mediate in conflict situations, how to use drama and role-play to help students handle conflict more constructively, how to deal with students who bully and students who are often victimised by peers, and how towork with parents to resolve bully/victim problems.
