Bullying: Additional Resources
A guide to sources for bullying research at College of Coastal Georgia.
This collection of web resources is being compiled by the GLBT Round Table of the American Library Association. While some resources focus specifically on bullying as it related to GLBT youth, there are excellent resources that deal with bullying and its vicitims regardless of orientation, gender, race, national origin, etc. A few of these resources are highlighted below.
"The Make It Better Project gives youth the tools they need to make their schools better now! Through our website and YouTube channel, youth and adults can work together to make schools safer for LGBT youth right now." While the main focus is on LGBT youth, resources found on this site can be useful in helping to address broader concerns with bullying.
A multi-agency effort within the U.S government created the Inter-Agency Task Force on Bullying. In August of 2010, "the Obama administration hosted the first ever National Bullying Summit and launched both the Stop Bullying Now! Campaign and bullyinginfo.org, a national database of effective anti-bullying programs." See below for the link to the "Stop Bullying Now!" campaign web site.
The Southern Poverty Law Center offers a wealth of information and resources for teaching children (and adults) about tolerance and respect. The Center's "Teaching Tolerance" magazine is carried by our library.
"MTV's A Thin Line campaign was developed to empower youth to identify, respond to, and stop the spread of digital abuse. The campaign is built on the understanding that there's a "thin line" between what may begin as a harmless joke and something that could end up having a serious impact on you or someone else."
"The Cyberbullying Research Center is directed by Dr. Sameer Hinduja (Florida Atlantic University) and Dr. Justin Patchin (University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire). They have been studying cyberbullying since 2002 and first launched this web site in 2005."
