University Of Central Arkansas Awarded NIH Grant To Study Bullying
The University of Central Arkansas has been awarded nearly $300,000 in grant money to study middle school bullying.
Three professors of the Department of Psychology and Counseling Department have been awarded the grant entitled, “Decreasing Bullying with a Self-Affirmation: A Test of the Compensation Model.”
Drs. Paul Nail, Elson Bihm, and Joan Simon’s research will test the this model.
The two-year long, National Institutes of Health grant will, in part, fund the interviewing of children, asking them what values are important to them and their families.
The research will be conducted in conjunction with the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
