Faye Mishna

Oxford University Press

This chapter will provide an overview of bullying that occurs within friendships and includes differentiating bullying from conflict within friendships. The chapter includes a review of the following practice implications and guidelines to help practitioners understand, assess, and intervene in bullying among friends: 1) recognize and address bullying among friends; 2) question how we define and understand friendships; 3) intervene appropriately in instances of bullying; 4) recognize that youth often do not disclose being bullied by friends; 5) listen, understand, and validate the child’s experiences and perspective; 6) differentiate bullying from “typical” conflict and recognize that youth might need adult help; 7) understand the serious impact of bullying within friendships; 8) be aware of and dispel myths and correct stereotypes; and 9) focus on the development of friendship skills. Case examples are provided.
