A review of the effectiveness of strategies and programmes to prevent bullying suggests that in order to substantially reduce bullying in schools a systemic approach needs to be adopted with interventions organized at various levels. Therefore, an ecological model for bullying prevention is presented in the accompanying article that suggests strategies and interventions at the levels of teachers, schools, communities, and society. Examples of interventions that have been found to have evidence supporting their effectiveness have been outlined at each of these levels. Guidelines are presented for schools adopting such an ecological model for addressing bullying and for bringing about the changes needed to implement it successfully.
