Special Issue: Message from the Editors
“This special issue will aim to present recent research evidence on the role of teachers in preventing and intervening in traditional bullying and cyberbullying.
The aim of this special issue is to bring together and spotlight research that:
- Examines the contextual and situational factors that constrain or support teachers in their efforts to prevent and intervene in traditional bullying and cyberbullying incidents.
- Details the optimal strategies teachers endorse to manage bullying and cyberbullying situations across different educational settings and populations of students.
- Examines the role and views of pre‐service and in‐service teachers on the prevention and intervention of traditional bullying and cyberbullying.
- Illuminates how teachers can best work in concert with other major stakeholders to attenuate these issues.
Research focusing on other clearly related subtopics may be considered, and will be evaluated based on feasibility, merit, and overall fit with the goals of the special issue and journal as a whole.”
