Ebook Description

Bullying in prisons can have severe consequences both for those directly involved and for the prison regime as a whole, yet the subject has been curiously neglected in the literature. In 1993, the Prison Service introduced their first anti-bullying strategy, and since then there has been a great deal of research on the subject. Bullying Among Prisoners summarises this research, and seeks to answer some important questions.Bullying Among Prisoners identifies problems in defining and measuring bullying, along with proposing guidelines on how research in this field should be conducted. The book covers:* what bullying is* how and why it occurs* the effects of bullying* practical strategies for preventing bullying.By outlining a series of interventions that can be employed to address bullying, this book will prove an invaluable resource for all those working directly with the perpetrators and victims, not only in prisons but also in a range of settings such as regional secure units and special hospitals.
