A Single-Subject Evaluation of the Target Bullying Intervention Program

Brandi L Berry, University of Nebraska - Lincoln


Bullying is increasingly recognized as a prevalent and harmful problem. Effective bullying interventions, particularly individualized programs appropriate for students at the secondary level, are lacking. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and acceptability of the Target Bullying Intervention Program (T-BIP) among four middle school students. The research questions examined whether anti-bullying attitudes increased following the T-BIP, whether bullying behaviors decreased following the T-BIP, and, finally, how acceptable student participants, parents, and counselors found the T-BIP. The results showed that the T-BIP did not have a significant effect on students’ anti-bullying attitudes or their bullying behaviors. Students and parents found the T-BIP to be highly acceptable and the counselors found the T-BIP to be moderately to highly acceptable. Discussion focused on limitations and implications for future research evaluating the effects of bullying prevention and intervention programs.
