Abstract

Over the past few decades, a great deal of research has been conducted on bullying and even though research continues, bullying is still a large problem in many of today's societies. An evaluation of the literature suggests that a whole-school-approach intervention program is most beneficial in the elementary school years (Beale, 2001; Gordon & Green, 2008; Hervey & Kornblum, 2006; Olweus, 1994). This overview of the vast literature and research, contributed to the creation of a program that can be implemented in the school system. It has been suggested throughout the literature, that the use of role-play can be a valuable tool in the struggle against bullying (Beale, 2001; DeRosier, 2004; Hervey & Kornblum, 2006). Therefore, the focus of this study will be on using Dramatherapy as a role based approach, to the ever-present problem of bullying in the school system (Kellermann, 1992; Landy, 2008)
