Functional Behavior Assessment of Bullying


There is no profile of a student who bullies, yet bullying intervention often takes a one-size-fits-all approach and so is not effective in eliminating bullying behavior. In the Functional Behavior Assessment of Bullying, Dr. Bill Jenson and colleagues have created a comprehensive system that will help you determine the unique contributing factors and functions that are causing bullying behavior.

INCLUDES ALL THE TOOLS YOU NEED FOR DETERMINING THE REASONS FOR THE BULLYING BEHAVIOR

Through interviews, observation forms, and other assessment materials, the FBA of Bullying can help you:

  • Identify times, situations, and people that predictably trigger bullying.
  • Determine whether the student is seeking adult or peer attention through bullying.
  • Identify skill deficits that may lead to bullying behavior (e.g., a student lacks anger management skills and lashes out at peers in response to frustration).
  • Determine whether a chaotic or punitive school climate or lack of supervision contributes to the student’s bullying.

 

CREATE A COMPREHENSIVE INTERVENTION

After conducting the FBA, use Bullying Solutions: Universal and Individual Strategies (included with your purchase) to select from 35 interventions based on research and best practices for changing student behavior and design an individualized function-based intervention plan.

The FBA of Bullying system includes:
