Implementation and evaluation of a comprehensive, school-wide bullying prevention program in an urban/suburban middle school.

This study evaluated the impact the OBPP on the frequency of bullying behaviors, school climate, and student’s perceived sense of safety at an urban/suburban, Catholic 7th and 8th grade middle school. Following the intervention, students reported a 34.4% decrease in reports of being excluded and a 31.1% decrease in reports of being bullied. Teachers reported a 48.8% increase in having observed bullying more frequently and 46.5% increase in talking with students who bullied others. Seventh grade females responded more positively following the intervention than other grade or gender cohorts.


Focuses on how media influences culture, body image, and behavior based on stories told by teens who consider themselves straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or questioning.
