Building resilience, avoiding victimisation project

Project leader(s)

The young people who took part in the Life at School Project are followed up in this study by Jacqueline Homel to find out how they have learnt to deal with victimisation and be resilient. The earlier study suggested that most children who are bullied at school bounce back to be well adjusted adolescents. This finding suggests that being bullied is a learning experience in itself. We hope to better appreciate the path of development that has been followed by those who have successfully transcended their primary school experiences.
