(p.29) Chapter 3 Theories That Help to Understand Bullying

Faye Mishna

Oxford University Press

This chapter will entail a review of theoretical frameworks that are typically utilized to understand and address bullying, including an ecological systems framework, social learning, cognitive behavioural, attribution, lifestyles exposure and resilience frameworks. The complexity of bullying demands that more than one theoretical lens be used to help understand this phenomenon and to inform effective prevention and intervention strategies and programs. An ecological systems theoretical framework serves as an overarching umbrella within which the complex factors and interactions that influence bullying behavior can be examined and addressed. Innumerable theories can be applied within an ecological systems framework—at different times, sequentially or simultaneously.

Keywords:   ecological systems framework, social learning framework, cognitive behavioural framework, attribution framework, lifestyles exposure framework, resilience framework, intervention strategies
