      Salomone, Kelly O.; The College at Brockport (2007-01-01)
      The purpose of this study was to determine if bullied students who participate in a counseling group benefit from increased self-esteem due to the intervention. A recent review of literature regarding bullying in school aged students is presented. Suggestions and techniques for counseling children who are bullied at school were explored in an effort to increase the selfconcept and self-esteem of these children. Adolescents participated in group sessions over a 10 week period. The participants completed a pre and post questionnaire for this study to determine the degree to which, if at all, the participants' self-concept/self-esteem increased due to the intervention.
