Bullying and school educational support professionals
The purpose of this study was to determine how an in-service for Educational Support Professionals (ESPs) would impact their perception and understanding of bullying, their role in intervening, as well as training needs. The study found that ESPs believe it to be within their role to intervene when they see bullying, but are not being included in staff development opportunities to learn more about bullying and how to effectively intervene. The study makes recommendations for how to increase ESPs knowledge of bullying and to better utilize them in bullying prevention efforts.
