[Clinical session research presentation] This study focuses on bullying behaviors among elementary school students. Through the use of a classroom character education intervention, the study aims to reduce the prevalence of bullying behaviors among fifth grade school age children. Bullying behaviors promote an environment of violence, fear, and hostility. The study will arrange to present six character education lessons in the classrooms of approximately 360 fifth grade students in select New York City public schools. Questionnaires will be administered to the students before and after all the lessons have been completed. Questionnaires will collect information about the students' self-perceptions about their levels of misconduct, impulsivity, confidence, value of nonviolence, ways they handle anger, self-opinions of their leadership behaviors, levels of self esteem and prevalence of bullying behaviors. In addition, their fifth grade teachers will complete pre and post intervention questionnaires about their perceptions of the student?s behaviors. Reduction of characteristic behaviors associated with bullying and an increase in behaviors associated with socially acceptable interpersonal interactions such as goal setting, communication of ideas and problem solving abilities will be measured.
