The Resilient Abilities and Decision-Making Skills of Mothers of Accused Bullies.
I am currently completing my Honours project in Psychology at Edith Cowan University and looking for participants who are mothers of school aged children. The research has ethics approval from the Edith Cowan University Faculty of Computing, Health and Sciences Ethics sub Committee. The study aims to compare the resilience, coping skills, social support and decision-making skills of mothers with children of accused bullies and those with children who have not been accused of bullying. Participants are requested to fill out a questionnaire that will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. No identifying information will be published and participants are free to withdraw at any time. If you, or someone you know, is interested in participating please click on the attached link that will take you to the information letter and questionnaire.
Please be aware that when the term ‘accused’ bully is used, it refers to if your child has ever been called in to see the teacher or confronted by another child’s parent because of bullying behaviour (i.e. if they have hit, excluded another, called someone names etc.).
Your honesty and help in this matter is greatly valued.
