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.
