Abstract

Student bullying in clinical practice remains a concern, and evidence regarding what works to specifically help the student appears rather piecemeal. At the same time, emergent literature indicates that some bullying interventions can be ineffective for behaviour change, or even deleterious to the staff which they target. Considering the potentially sizeable financial and personal costs associated with continued bullying and undertaking an intervention, it would seem sensible that any selected intervention method avoids those shown to be potentially ineffective or deleterious. Such avoidance would likely help to move the student bullying research forward, prevent further suffering and reduce the waste of valuable taxpayer resources.
