Abstract

Anti-bullying has long been a much-discussed issue in today’s academic community, with much of the attention focused on legislation, school environment, and psychological attributes such as aggressors’ mental state. Potential selfprotecting strategies that can be adopted by victims in real-life incidents, however, though useful and often immediately effective, are largely unexplored. Based on interviews with Xiao Ann—a middle-school student who had once suffered heavily from school bullying yet managed to get rid of it mainly through her own efforts this research aims to explore possible self-protecting strategies against school bullying that can be useful to victims, in the hope that more insights can be added to this field.
